November 12 - WOW Conference
On November 12, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., we will be hosting the Cleveland Chapter of the Wings of Women (WOW) Conference. This free conference is geared towards high school female students interested in pursuing STEM career fields. We bring in professional women mentors from various STEM fields, who spend the day speaking with the students about how they got to where they are today. There are also hands-on activities that go along with each of these fields to help spark further interest. This is a great opportunity for young ladies to be inspired and empowered to pursue whatever their hearts desire.
An application and a photo release form must be filled out, signed, and received
by November 1, 2016 to be considered for the conference.
