Tech Savvy Conference

Vanessa, our Estimating Coordinator, recently participated in the Tech Savvy Conference hosted by Triton College on March 25th. Tech Savvy is an AAUW event designed to attract girls into the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields, while also inviting parents, mentors and teachers currently teaching and/or working in the field to learn about new developments in STEM education and careers and how they can further support girls' interest and success in STEM. The opening speaker was Josyln Matt, Web Developer and Technical Business Analyst, Vail Systems Graduate, Proviso Math & Science Academy. Throughout the conference, Vanessa was able to participate in different workshops while meeting some inspiring women in the STEM world.
