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!

Second Annual S.H.E. Summit Week Expands to Celebrate and


New York (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

The first and only week designed to celebrate and inspire women, S.H.E. Summit Week (June 10-16), is back for its second year with an expanded lineup of global events and a marquee women’s leadership and lifestyle conference, S.H.E. Summit (June 14-15).

S.H.E. Summit Week will feature approximately 100 pop-up events designed for and by women held in cities coast to coast — including metropolises like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta; along with smaller locations like Addison, Texas; Newcastle, Wash.; and Indianapolis — making it a truly national women’s week. Worldwide, S.H.E. Summit Week will include events in London, Toronto, Madrid and even Nairobi.

“With Restaurant Week, Fashion Week, Internet Week, Social Media Week and even Shark Week, we have weeks dedicated to celebrating and learning about almost everything under the sun. Yet women, who make up more than half the U.S. population, drive 85 percent of all purchasing decisions, and own more than 8.6 million businesses that generate over $ 1.3 trillion in revenues, had no week to call their own until S.H.E. Summit Week,” said Founder Claudia Chan. “S.H.E. Summit Week is an opportunity to showcase and celebrate women’s achievements, while offering women a dedicated week to serve their passions and curiosities, while discovering new brands and relationships.”

Standing for “She Helps Empower,” S.H.E. Summit Week was created by Women’s Leadership and Lifestyle Expert Claudia Chan. Her namesake media brand, ClaudiaChan.com, features insightful, inspiring interviews with almost 200 remarkable women leaders, such as Model and Activist Christy Turlingon Burns, Dress for Success CEO Joi Gordon, Philanthropist Jennifer Buffett and Humanitarian Zainab Salbi, along with many emerging women leaders and entrepreneurs who are disrupting business as usual. Through S.H.E. Summit Week, Chan offers women everywhere a chance to connect in person with the female role models and organizations featured year round on her website. Events across the country and worldwide will cover topics that interest women, including networking, entrepreneurship, career development, personal finance, beauty, wellness and causes, giving women a chance to gather in person, learn, celebrate and find inspiration in each other.

Highlights of the S.H.E. Summit Week events include:


An Artful Evening by Uprise Art: Learn how to navigate the often confusing art world with a practical presentation on finding artwork that fits your style, taste, and budget from Uprise Art Founder Tze Chun and a pop-up artwork exhibition by women artists working in New York.

Breaking The Taboo around Women, Men & Money by GoGirl Finance: A dialogue about the changing nature of money, power and relationships covering the rise of the female breadwinner, and why financial services still can’t talk “female.” (Thurs., June 13, 6:30-9 p.m. ET at The Lofts at Prince in New York.)

Summit Week is a week for us to come together as women to share and celebrate all of our remarkable accomplishments, find the role models and encouragement we need to pursue our passion, and support each other along all of our journeys.”
