Nimisha Thakkar (she/her)

Program Manager

Nimisha has a B.S. in Information Technology from UMass Boston. Nimisha’s passion for STEM has been a constant ever since she represented women in STEM by being the only girl in many of her STEM classes. Thus, her goal has always been to encourage and inspire other young girls to believe in and pursue their passions, despite what anyone tells them. During college, Nimisha served as a Program Intern at SCFG where she appeared on SCFGLive!, mentored students in virtual Science Clubs, and helped develop SCFG's April Vacation Week Coding Club. After graduation, Nimisha’s professional and personal goals and values led her back to SCFG. She could not be more thrilled to be a part of such a mission-driven team with equal dedication to expanding the face of STEM! As a Program Manager, she promises to provide participants with a safe and exciting space to explore their interests and peak their curiosities through SCFG’s various programs! 


"My favorite woman in STEM is Dr. Rana El Kaliouby--an AI thought leader, machine learning scientist, and co-founder and CEO of Affectiva. I'm inspired by her dedication and creativity towards building Affectiva!"
