Brace yourself Boston! A powerhouse group of women is coming to town for The Successful You: 2013 Women’s Leadership Forum at the NERD Center on November 14.
This annual leadership conference, hosted in conjunction with The Commonwealth Institute (TCI), brings together a network of female entrepreneurs, CEOs, and leaders in STEM fields from the across New England. Joining these women will be 30 girls from the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts and Science Club for Girls. With women grossly underrepresented in science and technology fields, it is a much needed opportunity to mentor and provide support for these future leaders. In addition to sponsoring the girls, all proceeds of the conference will be donated to the two organizations to help them promote STEM education.
This year’s forum boasts a myriad of speakers, workshops, and networking opportunities. Dr. Georgia Papathomas, Vice President and Group CIO at Johnson and Johnson Pharmaceuticals, will jumpstart the day with a keynote followed by a talk on Executive Presence in STEM Fields by conference veteran Diane Ripstein, Owner and Principal at Diane Ripstein Consulting. Workshops will include The Future of Social Technology and Tapping Your Inner Entrepreneur.
Given this impressive group, tickets for the event will go fast! Early bird tickets are now available to purchase online here for $99 (regularly $125), so don’t wait…buy your tickets now to guarantee your ticket and savings! You can also donate an additional amount to the two organizations so they can continue their work of advocating for girls in STEM fields.
We’ll see you on November 14!
