Our Fall Retreat is an annual half-day event that seeks to educate career-exploring women in Oklahoma about the wide variety of opportunities in STEM, with a specific focus on IT. This event is FREE to students, teachers, and chaperones thanks in part to our generous sponsors and donors.
The 2023 Fall Retreat will be held at Love’s South Building in Oklahoma City (10401 N. Penn Ave). The event will contain content from an array of STEM-enthused speakers, speed networking Q&A with active STEM professionals, recruitment tables of post HS education options, and more!
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 gender-identifying women, we openly welcome anyone who is an advocate for a more gender equitable, diverse society. Content will remain catered to female students grades 8-12.
What is the cost to attend?
Thanks to our wonderful sponsors and donors, this event is free to all participants and chaperones.
