WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS HAD TO SAY ABOUT OUR SUMMIT

The Summit is an insightful and empowering program designed to inspire attendees through sessions tailored specifically for promoting women in STEM. Bringing together women from around the globe who are passionate about STEM fields resulted in an extremely powerful two days. I am delighted to play a part in this pioneering program

This is not just another women’s conference. The diversity of the attendees and the candid and inclusive atmosphere creates an empowering experience. Throughout the two days, attendees have the opportunity to hear from a variety of speakers who are committed to furthering the role of women in STEM fields. I left the conference inspired by the passion and talent of the conference participants

— Lyn Nguyen, Digital Transformation, Design Thinking Evangelist, Women in STEM Advocate
As a young female who is still trying to get her career rolling, I face a lot of insecurities in my abilities and have little confidence in myself. This summit was amazing, it gave me inspiration, advice, and support. I find myself simply wanting to go back to the summit and feel welcomed yet again. I cannot wait until the next summit
— Research Engineer
This conference came at the best time as I was feeling discouraged and angry at myself for consistently downplaying my ability to be a STEM student. Seeing so many highly successful and intelligent women on stage with diverse backgrounds was just the push I needed to revitalize my drive and determination to succeed and perform well.
— High school student
