On Tuesday, June 11th, Innovation Women will present the Innovation Women Pop-Up at LiveWorx in Boston. Innovation Women, an online visibility bureau for technical and entrepreneurial women, helps event managers find women speakers and helps women find speaking opportunities. With the goal of creating diverse and inclusive environments, the pop-up will focus on leadership, communication, mentoring, hiring, and self-advocacy in STEM fields. Attendees will also have access to our Coaching Corner, a chance for one-on-one meetings with experts in STEM careers, human resources, and diversity.
This pop-up is part of PTC’s efforts to increase the number of female speakers in STEM and develop a balanced lineup for future LiveWorx events.
Over 25 Innovation Women speakers will take part in the pop-up, co-located at the BCEC Room 253B.
