We had an amazing time at our annual Spring Empowerment Conference this past Saturday held at Molloy College- Suffolk Center! Thank you to our generous sponsor National Grid, beverage sponsor Coca-Cola, entertainment sponsor Raymond Williams Entertainment, and emcee Adriana Devers.
The day included breakout sessions, a hot topics discussion, speed mentoring and fempowerment dance workshop led by Karen Farnum-Williams! Girls learned about media literacy, talked about leadership traits, discussed their own ideas of success and visions for the future, as well as learned ways to break the negative stigma surrounding girls entering STEM and coding careers. Girls discussed some of the crucial issues they are faced with and ways to successfully tackle them.
“I learned new things that can help me in my future. Creating the vision boards really inspired me and gave me a lot of confidence… it felt really nice.”– Naydeli, 15 years old
