Mary Golden – Founder and Director
Marianne Gatten – Board Chair, Finance Committee Chair
Marianne joined the board in 2016 with the desire to do her part in increasing the number of women pursuing successful careers in STEM. In guiding her daughter’s education, she realized that even today girls still face some of the same obstacles she dealt with decades ago and enrolled her in Cool Girls.
Marianne is a career woman and the mother of two. She has an Industrial Engineering degree from the University of Pittsburgh and a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Virginia’s Darden School. Gleaning what she learned from a quarter-century of leadership in technology-driven Fortune 500 companies, Marianne is now the Principal Consultant at MKG Consulting LLC.
In her leisure time, she may be found on a hiking trail around Boulder or on the ski slopes of Winter Park with her family. She is committed to making a positive impact through her service with Cool Girls.
