When it comes to the in-demand, transportable skills students need to thrive in an evolving world, Maureen Weber has first-hand knowledge. Her career has spanned many sectors, but each has involved a common set of skills – the ability to think critically and creatively, communicate, and solve problems. First an attorney, then deputy commissioner for Indiana’s Department of Workforce Development and Bureau of Motor Vehicles, chief operating officer for the Indiana Department of Education, and vice president of customer experience for Indiana University Health, Maureen has led major strategic initiatives that have transformed organizations.
As Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, Maureen supports the successful growth of PLTW, helping to provide vision, leadership, and management to execute day-to-day operations and implement high-impact growth strategies. Every day, she continues to remind us why the transportable skills PLTW helps to teach students are so critical and valuable in the workplace.
In addition to her work with PLTW, Maureen was appointed by Governor Mitch Daniels and Superintendent Dr. Tony Bennett to chair the Indiana Charter School Board from 2012-15. She currently chairs the board of the Purdue Polytechnic Indianapolis High School and serves on the advisory board for Stand for Children Indiana, along with a variety of other boards and commissions in the Indianapolis community.
