Girls Innovate! Holds Second Leadership Forum for Women & Girls


San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 01, 2013

Together with the Silicon Valley office of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP and tech incubator nestGSV’ s women-focused technology community nestHER, Girls Innovate! is thrilled to announce the second installment of “Girls Innovate! Empowering Girls for Entrepreneurship & Leadership,” a free, public gathering for women and girls on June 1, 2013, 12:30-5:00p.m., at the offices of nestGSV in Redwood City, CA.

The Girls Innovate! gathering is designed to be a platform for business leaders, industry professionals and women and parents in the community to get together and engage in discussion regarding best practices for nurturing girls and supporting women of all ages to become innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders. Girls ages 10-18 are invited to join and participate in workshops that occur simultaneously with, but separately from, the adults’ discussions. Mothers and daughters are particularly encouraged to attend.

Uyen Le Kry, Founder/Organizer of Girls Innovate!, said this second gathering will build on the first Girls Innovate! event from March of this year by continuing to focus on critical ideas and thought leadership around boosting the pipeline of women leaders and innovators, while offering many more workshop options for the girls and increased capacity for attendance. “Our first event struck a nerve, with about 100 attendees and close to 200 on the waitlist,” Kry said. “The excitement caught us by surprise and confirmed our conviction that there is intense need in the community for women to be supported, both as nurturers and as role models for their kids.”

Kry continued, “Girls and women, in particular, are still behind in the number that occupy leadership and STEM roles. We believe the pipeline for future leadership will be much richer if we collaborate, join efforts and leverage our resources to lift us all up, and find a way to support – intellectually and emotionally – Together with the Silicon Valley office of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP and tech incubator nestGSV’ s women-focused technology community nestHER, Girls Innovate! is thrilled to announce the second installment of “Girls Innovate!
