WiSTEM LA: A Celebration of Women Leading the Cutting Edge in STEM Fields Across L.A.

  • Los Angeles County Museum of Arts - Bing Theatre 5905 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90036 United States (map)

Mayor Eric Garcetti invites you to WiSTEM LA: A Celebration of Women Leading the Cutting Edge in STEM Fields Across L.A.

Join us for the official launch of the Mayor's WiSTEM L.A. mentorship and networking initiative, and the new WiSTEM online platform to connect professional women in STEM fields with college women studying STEM disciplines, and build a community of advocates for gender equity in leading STEM institutions.

As Los Angeles continues to be a leader in high-growth STEM sectors, it is imperative that we become a model for closing the gender gap.

Mentorship will help to ensure women are prepared for the challenges of working in often male-dominated fields, while building comraderie and a network of support that will continue to grow.

This event will bring together some of the most dynamic women working in STEM fields from across all of Los Angeles and feature panelists who are paving the way from healthcare to AI, and aerospace to oceanography.
