Participating students gained experience by hearing unique stories of how women came to be doing the work they’re currently doing. Students also had the opportunity to hold informational interviews with the guest speakers and other professional women at each event:
- Women in Health & Well-Being on Thursday March 10, 2016
- Women in Government on Thursday April 14, 2016
- Women in The Trades on Thursday September 15, 2016
- Women in Science and Engineering on Monday October 24, 2016
This was not your series of regular speakers with boring slides. Our opening role models answered three brief questions about what they do and how they came to be doing their work. Young women were welcomed and encouraged to ask questions and interview the other attendees. We hope these conversations helped develop a wider scope of the different paths that students might take in their futures.
The San Leandro Educational Foundation (SLED) helped make this series happen by being our 501(c)(3) fiscal agent. Thanks SLED!
