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. See her full bio here.

Thank you to everyone for coming out and being a part of our community.

Congratulations to our members from the North Arvada Middle School chapter, who won a laptop from NFP PC's for People and a $500 scholarship as part of the winning TechChallenge team!

The winning team also got to attend the Women in Tech Conference with Lt. Gov Donna Lynne.

 


Girls in STEM was invited to participate in the Inaugural SheTech Explorer event hosted by Colorado Technology Association on June 8th. High School girls explored various technologies with hands-on activities and participated in design challenges. We truly believe it is important for girls to have these types of experiences to learn, be inspired and understand that a career in STEM is attainable! Thank you to CTA for providing this exciting and fun opportunity! See one of our girls share her thoughts with channel 7 News in the clip above.
