Event Gallery

Power Women 2.0 provides meaningful learning experiences for high school students through career-oriented lectures and mentorship opportunities from senior female leaders in fields such as finance, communications, engineering, health care, law, and more. When you provide personally relevant, engaging experiences, students are inspired and exposed to previously unimagined college and career opportunities.

Power Women 2.0 facilitators, mentors and guest speakers will include female influencers from the fields of finance, technology, fitness and beauty. Student participants can expect lectures, a series of panels, a fashion presentation, demonstration and Q & A during the course of the one-day workshop. Sponsorship is critical to women’s success in the business world today. Senior female leaders are asked to bring their female protégés to the event, to help expand the networks of these emerging women leaders. In turn these women will be paired with a high school female participant for six months.
