Inspiring girls at the 3rd Annual WWDAY Ladies First in STEM Conference

I have had the honor and privilege to speak at this conference for the last two years.  The young women are high school juniors and seniors at Nellie Thornton High School in Mount Vernon NY.

“This annual event allows guests ranging from female doctors to construction workers to engage high school students in meaningful discussions regarding women and careers in the growing fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.”

I always walk away deeply inspired by the stories of my fellow speakers and from the students.  After the presentations, we sit down and have lunch with the girls and get a chance to speak to them one on one.
