The annual event will resume as a virtual conference throughout the month of March 2021
“Her Story” is the theme for the 20th Annual Empowering Young Women’s Conference, a collaborative effort of the Adrian Dell and Carmen Roberts Foundation and Howmet Aerospace. In previous years, the conference was held at Riverside Community College where over 200 girls would consistently attend.
This year, due to the pandemic, things have changed, but the conference is still continuing—-virtually. The FREE conference will be held EVERY Saturday in March from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Girls have until March 3 to register, but they must register by February 20 to receive a mailed STEM Kit.
The conference consists of activities for the girls and special guests that speak inspiration into them. This year’s keynote speaker is LeShuana Evans. Evans supports the U.S. Department of Defense in STEM education, outreach and workforce development as a contractor in Alexandria, VA.
Video guests of the conference include Sydney Barber, Midshipman 1st Class-US Naval Brigade Commander; Valorie Burton, President and CEO of CaPP Institute; Dr. Yolanda Harold, Anesthesiologist; Alesia Martin, Sr. Project Engineer, King’s Hawaiian, Western Region; Dr. Lauren Mathews, General Dentist and Owner of Mathews Dental Group; Lee Rodriguez, Actress and Model; and Monica Stockhausen, Founder and CEO of Nerdy Girls and the Proven Method.
