2nd Annual Mocktail Social - THANK YOU!

Find Your Confidence & Super Power; Become Your Own Wonder Woman

On Tuesday, Oct. 17, dozens of professional women in STEM and high school students gathered for an evening of inspiration & networking over empanadas and Wonder Woman themed mocktails. In addition to mentoring and networking activities, attendees got to have fun in a Wonder Woman photo booth and have their formal headshots taken throughout the evening.

This year's keynote speaker was Katica Roy, CEO and co-founder of Denver-based Pipeline, a SaaS company that leverages artificial intelligence to identify and drive economic gains through gender equity. Katica is driven by a passion to eradicate economic inequality and champions the rights of refugees, women, and children.
