Normally at the in-person conference we hold a raffle with the proceeds going to a non-profit organization that supports girls and women.
With our online version this year that isn’t practical, and so we encourage you to make a donation.
We wish to support at least one young black student attend their STEMing UP program through which 14-17 year old girls attend a four-week course where they learn more about
- Design thinking
- App building
- Front/backend developing
- Analytical Thinking
- Business and leadership skills.
The program gives young girls the tools to empower themselves through study and career exploration of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)
The program can span two years, with participants increasingly challenged with real-world problems set by mentors and solved through skills they develop in the program.
