Join the Women’s Business Development Center and the Enterprising Women Foundation for a panel discussion with accomplished women entrepreneurs in STEM-related fields discussing the benefits, challenges and strategies for establishing and growing successful businesses in science, technology and engineering as well as contracting opportunities and hurdles in the private and public sectors. 

A tour will be conducted of CSMART immediately before the STEMpreneur Insights Tea from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. 

Also invited to the tea are girls excelling in STEM subjects from local organizations and schools, including Girls4Science, Girls in the Game, Perspectives High School of Technology, and the Young Women’s Leadership Charter School.
