Girls of Promise Conference 2024
Girls of Promise Conference, an initiative of the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas, exposes girls to opportunities and mentors in STEAM fields. GoP has the goal of increasing the number of women in higher-level STEAM courses, careers and putting them on the path to achieving economic security as women. The Conference is geared toward 8th-grade girls interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math* in Arkansas! The girls learn about various STEAM careers, enhancing their skills, and meeting women mentors excelling in their fields.
*Please keep in mind that the "Arts" in STEAM is referencing the innovative and creative components of a traditional STEM education. We will not have any fine arts (like painting, dance, theatre, etc.) breakout sessions.
Our 2024 Girls of Promise will begin with a virtual kick-off on Thursday, April 4th from 5:15-6:00pm, followed by a 1-day in-person conference on Friday, April 5th, 2023 from 8:00am- 4:00pm.
For the safety of our teachers, students, and facilitators, masks are optional to wear throughout the conference.
