The OK-WISE Conference is an interdisciplinary event allowing women in STEM & entrepreneurship showcase their work and build networks. The conference features speakers such as Gene Nora Jessen, original member of Mercury 13, Carolyn Rodz, founder of Alice – an AI-Based business accelerator, and former White House Adviser Michelle Millben. Other speakers and panelists will cover a variety of topics spanning the scientific, economic, and societal impacts of women and have all been selected based on their significant accomplishments in scientific research, business and entrepreneurship, and/or their societal impact through public service. It is our hope that this conference will spark new vision, encourage further research, foster new collaboration, and ultimately lead to more innovation.
The conference will feature morning, lunch, and evening keynote addresses, along with 6 Q&A topical panels and 3 matchmaking sessions. Each matchmaking sessions is designed to connect attendees with community leaders, entrepreneurship support organizations, or businesses that can serve as resources for women working in STEM or entrepreneurship.
