San Ramon, CA - April 19th, 2018
An acronym for "Strengthen Her Education", the
JA S.H.E. Leads STEM Summit regional educational series expanded into the East Bay Area, with this forum presented by
Andeavor. The theme of this event was "The Women Who Power The Bay Area", and the event featured a panel discussion and student Q&A with women in the energy sector and supporting industries.
Over 150 high school girls partnered with female STEM professionals for an inspiring day of mentorship and hands-on activities from JA's career readiness curriculum.
JA S.H.E. Leads STEM Summit taught me...
- "That women can work in big corporate jobs and be respected."
- Eken, 10th Grade | Dozier-Libbey HS
- "That I am surrounded by a large community of STEAM women who are ready and willing to support me in my future aspirations."
- Devyn, 11th Grade | Amador Valley HS
I feel motivated to pursue a career in STEM after this summit because...
- "There were just so many mentors here that gave me a new outlook on my future." - Jeysse, 11th Grade | Pinole Valley HS
- "Today, I have met a lot of women who are really successful in a STEM career. Seeing this makes me more confident in pushing myself and to pursue a career in engineering." - Udoka, 10th Grade \ Dozier-Libbey HS
