Event: Latinas Think Big Innovation Summit at Google
Tune in tomorrow to watch an extraordinary event - the first in history - that examines the role of Latinas in STEM. While registration is closed for the event, you can tune in live and still watch. Here is the description of the event - taken from their website:
"The Latinas Think Big™ Innovation Summit, hosted at Google’s campus in Silicon Valley, sparks a national dialogue on the current state and future of Latinas in STEM careers, with an emphasis on technology and innovation. This full-day event convenes a group of talented Latina innovators — along with a carefully vetted group of innovative leaders, tech entrepreneurs and influencers — to connect, learn and elevate the conversation on Latina innovation. The Summit will educate, empower and engage its audience with plenary and breakout-sessions, keynote speakers, and high-caliber networking opportunities.
This exciting event culminates with the Latinas Think Big™ showcase and a Cocktail Evening Reception with live music. You can participate in the event by asking questions or sharing your favorite quotes on Twitter, Google+ and Instagram using the hashtag #LatinasThinkBig.
Tell us how you innovate by adding the hashtag #NewFaceOfInnovation to your social media posts. Share a photo of yourself or a Latina who inspires you to innovate in your life or career. We’ll amplify your photos, tweets and posts in our social networks."
This event is being organized by Angelica Perez Litwin, PhD. To learn more about this extraordinary woman in tech - check out some of her ventures: ELLA Institute, New Latina, Latinas Think Big, and the Latina Leadership Network Facebook group. Join the LATINAS THINK BIG™ Google+ Community.
