RTC Founder and President Sue Harnett to be honored with TBJ’s 2020 Women in Business award!

Durham, NC – April 8, 2020


We’re pleased to announce that our own Sue Harnett has been chosen as a winner of Triangle Business Journal’s 2020 Women in Business Awards. The awards program has been running for 23 years to celebrate women from the 16 Triangle region counties who are doing amazing things in business and the community.

“The team at Rewriting the Code has always known Sue is special, but now we’re excited that more people will see some of the amazing things she has accomplished.” [Jade Barricelli, VP, Student + Partner Programs, RTC]

As described on the TBJ website, “These awards honor women in various business categories who have proven to be dynamic and outstanding leaders with established track records of significant accomplishments in business and/or community service.” Sue will be recognized in the category of Non-Profit Leadership for her dedication to building the RTC community to help college women in tech all around the world from right here in Durham.

“I was honored to nominate Sue, and I’m not surprised she won. She has been an inspiration to me, and to everyone at RTC, with her determination and drive to make RTC a community for women everywhere!” [Cassidy Soutter, RTC intern, UNC class of 2020]

The awards will be presented in August, but in the meantime, please join us in congratulating Sue Harnett on this well-deserved achievement!
