Our programs provide a portfolio for women in STEM industries that provides education and development throughout the lifecycle of their career:
In order to meet our goals, The Evolve Women Foundation will initially focus on four areas of programming:
Development and educational programs: The Foundation will design, organize and produce programs, conferences, teach-ins and seminars, in order to provide training, education and support for women in the workforce. These programs may cover targeted issues for each “life-cycle” of a woman’s career as well as specific issues facing women in today’s workplace. The initial focus will be on encouraging, training and supporting women entering STEM areas of expertise.
Scholarship: As part of its mission to encourage women at all stages of their career cycle, Evolve Women, plans to include programs focused on encouraging women to enter STEM areas of the workforce. This would include partnerships with Universities and Secondary Schools to establish forums and speaking engagements to educate women on career and educational opportunities within each area of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
Mentoring: The Evolve Women mentoring program will bring together seasoned professionals with early to mid-cycle women in the STEM workplace. Starting in Nashville, Tennessee, where The Evolve Women Foundation is located, we will capitalize on the enormous talent and expertise available in the metropolitan area to start our mentoring programs, with the intent to roll out such programs to other markets. We will provide a forum and guidelines for women seeking mentors to avail themselves of these women and their vast amount of institutional knowledge. In addition, we hope to expand to a program to provide hands-on support and incubation of ideas for women entrepreneurs seeking to start a business, including start-up grants and investments.
