Women and Girls Thriving in the New Economy 2010


The Women & Girls 2010 Summit is a interactive forum to find ways to move women into education and training in non-traditional careers, including science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

This free event is Thursday (12/2/2010) at New Venture Hall, The Tech Museum.

Women are increasingly prominent in medicine, law and business, yet there are few women scientists and engineers. This forum provides an opportunity to address promoting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education especially for girls and other underrepresented populations along with reducing gender barriers in these fields.
