40 percent of women believe that companies DO NOT spend the right amount of time addressing diversity

HEY! We always wanted to say this "Due to popular demand, the name has been changed to Women in Tech, Science and Engineering."
It's our 3rd month of Women in Tech (Science and Engineering) Happy Hour+ and it's on July 9th from 5-7 PM. It's free but please register online so we know who's coming.
Who should attend?
If you're a woman in tech, science or engineering WiTSE; want to become one, have a women-owned business, are a leader or seeking mentoring--we want you here! If you are curious about what it takes to be a WiTSE in 2018, come and join us. There will be lots of discussion about STEM!
Bring a friend!
Make sure you bring a friend who hasn't attended and get a chance to win a $25 gift card to BellHop (lunch for 2).
What's the goal for these events?
We aim to bring together the women in tech, science, and engineering from all around the region to connect, collaborate, mentor, and learn from each other and make new friends.
The event is free and there will be appetizers and drinks so please spread the word and be sure to register. We're actively seeking sponsors for both the year and for each event also.
