This half-day event will educate young adults on the variety of career opportunities available for women in STEM. This free-to-attend event includes several sessions to meet and interact with women who make an impact in tech roles and companies across our state. Participants will see first-hand what it is like to have a career in the growing tech industry as well as the many forms a tech career can take in today’s day and age.
Who can attend?
In recognition of the ongoing gender gap in IT within the classroom and in the workforce, we specifically market this event to females in local area high schools or high school graduates (grades 10-12+). While this event targets women, we openly welcome men who want to engage in the conversation and contribute to a more equitable, diverse society. Participants can register as individuals, or as larger groups with dedicated chaperones.
What is the cost to attend?
Thanks to our wonderful sponsors and donors, this event is free to all participants and chaperones.
