Girls Lead the Way conference at Colorado School of Mines

Help us spread the word for this year’s Girls Lead the Way leadership conference hosted by the Society of Women Engineers collegiate and professional sections at Colorado School of Mines!

During the conference, high school girls (grades 9-12) will interact with current Mines students and faculty in three, hour-long engineering and/or applied math and sciences activities designed to engage students with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors at Mines. The event also includes a majors panel, where the girls will hear highlights of each major from department representatives, a parents/guardians’ information session hosted by Mines Undergraduate Admissions (optional), and a campus tour (optional).

This year’s theme, “Boldly Go Where No Woman Has Gone Before,” reflects the conference’s goal of empowering young women with the knowledge that they are capable of pursuing and thriving in STEM education and careers.
