Women in STEM: Networking Night

March 4, 2020
5:00 PM

Join your colleagues for a networking happy hour to celebrate International Women's Day. Following the happy hour, Whitaker will host a special screening of Brave, the newest short-film from the global campaign for girls’ education and empowerment Girl Rising, with a video introduction by Christina Lowery, CEO of Girl Rising. All individuals involved in STEM are invited!
Individual Ticket - $15
Advocate Sponsorship (includes 10 tickets and special recognition at event): $250
Around the world, girls face unique barriers to education. In our community, a combination of social factors and access to STEM experiences limits the number of girls seeking careers in these fields. In fact, 57% of girls say they do not normally consider a career in STEM.
Brave highlights some of the barriers girls face globally, telling the story of Nasro, a 17-year-old girl whose courageous drive to continue her education is inspired by the magical dreams of her mother and the sisterhood of her friends. Through creating mentors and places to empower girls in their education and daily life, we can break these barriers. If you are interested in purchasing individual tickets  

To purchase tickets or sponsorships please contact Kelly Henderson at khenderson@whitakercenter.org.
Proceeds benefit Whitaker’s Girls in STEM Initiative, creating fun and welcoming environments for girls to build their skills and confidence in STEM.
