Angie Lienert has held many jobs throughout her nearly 30-year career: Arabic linguist in the U.S. Air Force, program manager, and government contractor, just to name a few. Now she’s helping young women enter the STEM field.
Lienert currently serves as President and CEO of IntelliGenesis, LLC, a company she founded in 2007 that offers a variety of services, including cyber operations, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity training courses. She will serve as the keynote speaker for this month’s Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce Women in Business Program on Tuesday, June 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Enterprise Mill Events Center on Greene Street.
Lienert will discuss how her company helps female college students prepare for STEM careers through its Women Supporting Women Scholarship.
Each year, IntelliGenesis awards 11 one-time $1,500 scholarships to students in Maryland, Georgia, and Texas. To be eligible, students must attend college full-time, major in a STEM field, have a 3.5-grade point average, and demonstrate financial need, among other criteria.
The company is based in Columbia, Maryland, and has a location in the Georgia Cyber Center in downtown Augusta.
“Although Angie’s list of achievements is impressive, what’s most inspiring is she started the kind of company she wanted to work for and continues to provide that balanced atmosphere for her employees,” said Chamber Executive Vice President, Angie Martin. “Not only does she value her current workforce, but she is also dedicated to investing in her future workforce by providing scholarships to young women pursuing a college education in STEM areas of study.”
Martin said attendees will also hear a speech from MaKenzie Watson, the 2022 Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Augusta Youth of the Year.
The cost is $30 for Chamber members and $40 for prospective members. The registration deadline is tomorrow at 3 p.m. For more information or to register for the event, visit augustametrochamber.com/events/women-in-business-june-2022.
