Empower STEM Students, Empower Yourself - Workshop and Lunch

Executive director and co-founder of Boundless Brilliance, Audrey Shawley, will talk about using empowerment language to help yourself and others, especially women, girls, and others underrepresented in science and engineering, navigate STEM education and careers. Workshop is targeted at those who identify as women, those interested in outreach, and anyone who wants to help increase diversity in STEM, but all are welcome.

This workshop will:

- Expose Caltech students, especially women in STEM fields, to the Boundless Brillance mission, program, need, and impact
- Facilitate group activities that empower those in attendance around topics such as imposter syndrome
- Demonstrate an "empowering theme" activity that we facilitate in elementary school classrooms
- Invite you to take action - if you are interested in getting involved in this work, what does that look like for Caltech students?

Boundless Brilliance is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit founded by female scientists in 2017. Their mission is to empower students, especially girls, to explore futures in STEM fields. They work with elementary and college aged students, facilitating empowerment activities and interactive STEM experiments. Audrey Shawley, Executive Director and co-founder, will be coming to Caltech to discuss the unique Boundless Brilliance program and impact, lead empowerment activities, and extend an opportunity for you to engage with this service work in your community.

Lunch will be provided. Limit 25 attendees. RSVP to https://diversitycenter.caltech.edu/events/RSVP
