Girls in STEM, Women in Business

Greane Tree Technology President Annmarie Lanesey will speak about Girls in STEM and Women in Business at two events in April.

The first event is “Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM): Change. Create. Collaborate. Contribute. Girls in STEM.” The event aims to educate girls and their parents about the opportunities and rewards of STEM education and careers. Annmarie will appear with representatives from GLOBALFOUNDRIES, NYSERDA, CNSE, and Ballston Spa Central School District on a panel entitled “Business & Industry Careers - Amazing Women Leaders in STEM.” Other panels will address “Messaging & How Girls Learn” and “Summer Camps.” There will also be workshops exploring education and careers in Information Technology, Clean Energy, and Semi-Conductor and Nanotechnology. Contact Mary Burke for more information about the event, scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at HVCC’s TEC-SMART campus in Malta. 

The second event is the “Tech Valley Series for Empowering Women Annual Symposium.” The symposium will offer “strategies and solutions” to help women-owned businesses (WOB) achieve success. Annmarie will lead a workshop called “The Business of Running Your WOB.” Participants will discuss strategies and tactics for handling challenges specific to women-owned businesses, and also explore the importance of building a support network of other entrepreneurial women. Other workshops offered are: “Getting the Yes: Critical Negotiation Skills for Women,” “Manage Your Career. Don’t Let It Manage You,” “Making Impossible Conversations Possible,” and “Demystifying the Roles of Mentors, Advocates, and Sponsors in Your Career.” The symposium will be held on Thursday, April 25, from 11 am to 5 pm, at the Century House in Latham.
