FIU in DC: STEMConnector Million Women Mentors (MWM) Gala & Summit

This is a past event.

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Willard InterContinental 401 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC, United States

When: October 22-23, 2019
Gala Location: The Willard InterContinental Washington D.C., 1401 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20004
Summit Location: FHI 360 Conference Center, 1825 Connecticut Avenue, NW, 8th Floor, Washington, DC 20009
Who: A national network of leaders that will continue to encourage more women and girls in STEM careers through mentoring.

On the evening of October 22, 2019, we will celebrate the 5-year anniversary of the Million Women Mentors network. We will recognize the leaders who make our movement possible and work every day to increase the confidence of women and girls to pursue and excel in STEM careers through the power of mentoring. The event will take place from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM at the Willard InterContinental. Dress code is Black Tie Optional.

The following day (10/23), at the Summit, attendees will immerse themselves in new research, best practices, and helpful resources. With workshops tailored to audience interest, attendees will work to problem-solve around specific challenges relevant to their role in the mentoring space (including program leaders, industry partners, volunteers, and mentors themselves). Workshops will also provide an occasion for state leaders to share how they have operationalized mentoring programs and volunteer networks within their states. Attendees will leave the Summit with access to new resources for measuring impact of programs within their organization. All sessions are available to everyone; strand themes are only to help attendees orient themselves within the Summit and programming.

Please note space is very limited for both events.
