WOMEN BUSINESS GROUPS JOIN FORCES TO RECOGNIZE BAY AREA HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FOR LEADERSHIP AND ACHIEVEMENTS IN STEM FIELDS

 

The Enterprising Women Foundation is proud to partner with Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), and the Women Presidents' Organization (WPO) to showcase an outstanding group of high school girls who are our leaders of tomorrow at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel at 5:30 pm on May 14, 2015.  Each young woman is being recognized for her leadership and her achievements in one of the STEM (science, technology, engineering or math) fields.  

Being awarded certificates of achievement are 9 wonderful young ladies from the Bay Area:

·       Ilona Bodnar

·       Eva Cole

·       Jordan Fuse

·       Paige Knef

·       Uma Krishnan

·       Emily Laing

·       Jarelly Martin

·       Maya Srikanth

·       Jenna Sveum

 

"We are connecting these young women with outstanding women entrepreneurs from the San Francisco area at this dinner event to provide mentorship and inspiration for them.  We want them to dream big and chart their paths to a successful future, which may include one day leading their own businesses,” said Barbara Kasoff, president of Women Impacting Public Policy. 

Monica Smiley, president and founder of the Enterprising Women Foundation shared that the Foundation has set a goal of hosting events in 100 U.S. cities over the next five years to provide mentorship on entrepreneurship and the STEM fields to high school girls across America.  She continued, "We are so pleased to have the opportunity to partner with other leading organizations in the women's business community to help accomplish this important goal.”
