“Thank you for putting on such a terrific event last night regarding the panel of women in various careers. I have rarely seen Julia come home so energized and enthusiastic! She couldn’t stop talking about each woman she met and the amazing things they are doing. This was a true game changer for her! We have no one in our family in the sciences so we can’t help Julia at all navigating all the directions she could go in. This seminar/panel was invaluable and it was empowering too! She is still smiling and walking around with a bounce in her step. Thank you, thank you for this opportunity!”
This is what one of the teen participant’s parents wrote the day after the event.
Thanks to the wonderful scientists and mentors at Mass AWIS, and especially Madeleine Bayne for organizing a career night for our teens. It gave a chance for them to learn about careers in science, tech and engineering, through short “round-robin” conversations. And also provided an opportunity for our girls who are not in our programs this summer to reconnect with each other and with staff.
Mentoring rocks! Thank you, MASS AWIS!
P.S. MASS AWIS will be celebrating their 10th Anniversary on September 20th. Join them!
