      EVENT DETAILS
      International Women's Day Celebration!

      Join Microsoft New England to celebrate International Women's Day and the launch of the Boston Area Girls STEM Collaborative!

       

       Comprised of a group of individuals and representatives from the nonprofit and academic world, the Collaborative is working together to increase girls' participation in STEM. 

       

       

      Please join us to celebrate International Women’s Day with a deeper look at how you can support women/girls in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).  As the number of women in STEM careers slowly grows, it is important for those already in the industry (women & men) to step up and ensure the success of more women. Whether by hosting a workshop for young girls or working to hire more women onto your team, there are a number of different things every person can do to be a part of the solution to this dated issue. But what are they? How effective can you be?

       

      On Thursday, March 7th, Microsoft New England and The Boston Area Girls STEM Collaborative will host a dynamic panel that will explore the opportunities to make a real impact with women and girls in STEM. This panel will address crucial questions, such as:

      • How can we motivate girls to pursue STEM activities?
      • Which organizations & programs are driving impact for girls in Boston?
      • How do girls in STEM impact business in Boston?
      • What can you do, both personally & professionally to be part of the solution?
      • What can corporations do beyond provide funding?
      • Which programs and leaders are excelling at closing the gap today?

       

      Panelists to be announced soon.

      We hope to see you there!
