The Silicon Valley Leadership Group presents:


10th Women & Girls Leadership Summit

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

8:00 a.m. - 12:45 p.m

McKinley Institute of Technology: 400 Duane St  Redwood City, CA 94062





The Women & Girls Summit helps empower young girls from our under-resourced schools by introducing them to private and public sector women role models and serves to energize the girls about the importance of education.

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


As a thank you to McKinley Institute of Technology 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.
