The 12th Women & Girls Summit

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

8:15 a.m. - 12:30 p.m

Monroe Middle School in the Campbell Union School District


                                        

 

The Women & Girls Summit helps empower young girls from our under-resourced schools by introducing them to and engaging them with private and public sector women leaders.


 

Please join us for a morning where elected officials, community leaders, and women executives help inspire young girls at Monroe Middle School through panel discussions, hands-on activities, and classroom visits about the importance of college and career. 

 

 

As a thank you to Monroe Middle School for hosting this summit, we will be presenting a monetary gift to the school to develop and expand their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) program.  A portion of your registration fees is used for this school gift.
