2021 Application is now OPEN!
Girls of Promise, 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 Girls of Promise Conference is open to 8th-grade girls who are interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math in Arkansas! Students will spend multiple days learning about various STEAM careers, enhancing their skills, and meeting women mentors excelling in their fields. For the safety of our teachers & students, we are choosing to hold our Girls of Promise virtually during the first week of April 2021.
For 2021 we will be hosting our event virtually on April 1st & 2nd. Girls can tune in on our conference from the comfort of their home given that they have access to a phone, computer, or tablet that has internet access! All activities will be shown in Zoom format and will be accessed via the app Socio. We will still be keeping all activities from previous years so that girls can still have group teams that they can socialize & communicate with! For more information on our activities for 2021, please visit our schedule page. Additionally, we will have our keynote speaker and additional speakers to talk and engage girls on STEAM subjects!
