Tanya“As leaders in our communities and industries, BWGC members know how important positive experiences with science, technology, engineering and/or math are to this next generation of young women. Careers in these fields offer greater financial and job security. With women still underrepresented in most STEM professions, our focus is to give more girls opportunities to grow their confidence in these subjects. As we celebrate 5 Years of Empowering Young Women, we look forward to growing our membership to have an even greater impact in the years ahead.”
--Tanya La Force, founder of Mission Focused Consulting, and 2018-2019 chair of the BWGC
