The 2018 Million Women Mentors Summit & Awards Gala

About

Join Million Women Mentors and global thought leaders for two days of engaging programming around mentoring!

When: October 25-26, 2018
Summit Location: Marriott Marquis DC, 901 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001
Gala Location: National Museum of Women in the Arts, 1250 New York Ave NW, Washington, DC 20005
Who: A national network of leaders that will continue to encourage more women and girls in STEM careers through mentoring

On the evening of October 25, 2018, we will celebrate progress from across the Million Women Mentors network, recognizing the leaders who make our movement possible and work every day to increase the confidence of women and girls to pursue and excel in STEM careers through the power of mentoring. The event will last from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Dress code is Black Tie Optional.
The following day, at the Summit, attendees will immerse themselves in new research, best practices, and helpful resources. With workshops tailored to audience interest, attendees will work to problem-solve around specific challenges relevant to their role in the mentoring space (including program leaders, industry partners, volunteers, and mentors themselves). Workshops will also provide an occasion for state leaders to share how they have operationalized mentoring programs and volunteer networks within their states. Attendees will leave the Summit with access to new resources for measuring impact of programs within their organization.

Please note space is very limited. Each registration represents entrance for one attendee at the Gala & the Summit.
