Event description
How women around the globe are leading innovation through STEM careers.

About this Event

OPEN and World Partnerships welcomes a panel of 8 women leaders from Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia to hear stories about their work, their countries, and the challenges and opportunities for women in STEM fields around the globe.

“Hidden No More” is the name of the US Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) special initiatives focused on empowering women leaders worldwide in the STEM fields.

This special initiative was inspired by the movie “Hidden Figures”, which tells the story of the unheralded women scientists in the early days of NASA. In the movie, a visionary trio of brilliant African-American women working at NASA served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn, a stunning achievement that turned around the Space Race.

Their story crossed all gender and racial lines and inspired generations of women around the world to seek careers in Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM).

OPEN and World Partnerships have joined together to develop new and novel approaches that bring global perspectives to local and regional community engagement. While OPEN provides the “community on-ramp” to engage World Partnerships official international visitors, World Partnerships brings a “global on-ramp” for the OPEN community to engage and connect with the World.

Together OPEN and World Partnerships educate the world about Americans, and educate Americans about the World.

Event is FREE and OPEN to the Public.

Seating is limited, so please Register to attend!

Brought to you in partnership with: World Partnerships
