In spring 2010 NMNWSE will hold 4 EYH conferences featuring small hands-on technical careers workshops designed to encourage young women to consider technical careers.
We anticipate roughly 1000 New Mexico teens will attend and receive a copy of the NMNWSE Careers CD with our Careers Book and other career information, and participate in the workshops where they can get a taste of what it is like to work in various technical fields and meet women role models from those fields. There are also programs for educators and parents who accompany the students to EYH. Please encourage teens in your area to attend, and also please consider volunteering to help or sponsor - see the webpages below for conference contacts plus registration information etc, or email the NMNWSE Board if you'd like to help, sponsor, or have questions.
