Meridian International Center Hosts Women In Science Virtual Panel on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2016

On International Women’s Day, March 8, 2016, Meridian International Center will host its inaugural Women In Science (WiSci) Virtual Panel Series. This three-panel series will feature top leaders discussing the benefits of public-private partnerships, best practices in working with multiple partners, and strategies for engaging youth in science and technology in the classroom. There will also be a dynamic panel featuring WiSci campers who will share their experiences in Rwanda and how the 2015 WISci Camp has impacted their communities. This virtual panel series coincides with Global Partnerships Week, and provides additional opportunities for public and private sector leaders to learn more about the global impact of public-private partnerships on organizations, communities, and countries around the world.

About The WiSci 2015 STEAM Camp:

In Summer 2015, The U.S. Department of State, Girl Up of the UN Foundation, Intel, Microsoft, The Rwanda Girls Initiative, and the AOL Charitable Foundation partnered with Meridian International Center to run a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Camp for high school girls at the Gashora Girls Academy in Rwanda. Campers traveled from the United States and around Africa to participate in classes designed by Microsoft, Intel, and the AOL Charitable Foundation, engaging these girls in STEAM subjects.
