The excitement and energy was amazing on Saturday as nearly 900 girls in K-12, mentor women, parents and educators streamed onto the Stuart campus for #LEADLIKEAGIRL: A Conference for Risk-Takers and Changemakers. Conference attendees felt empowered by NASA's former chief scientist, Dr. Ellen Stofan, who called today's girls "The Mars Generation." She explained that, "NASA has a goal of getting astronauts to Mars by the 2030's. One of them could be in this room today!" Later in the day young women and their parents filled Cor Unum to be inspired by Debbie Sterling, CEO of GoldieBlox. "If you go out there you'll be surprised at some of the things you're able to achieve," she told them. In between keynotes, guests chose from over 50 workshops, panels and presentations from 85 guest speakers, and enjoyed "Lunch with an Expert." Read more in a separate article about the STEM Talks, Business Fair and Expo. Recordings of select sessions will be available soon. Many thanks to everyone in the Stuart community, including many alumnae guest speakers, who welcomed hundreds and hundreds of guests to our wonderful campus and showed them what it's really like to #LEADLIKEAGIRL!
