In our continuing mission give girls the access, skills and empowerment they need to “Save the World,” Zen Digital Europe is thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with iLive2Lead (iL2L.org), a Washington DC-based nonprofit organization that cultivates leadership skills in promising young women leaders of tomorrow from every corner of the globe.
As global STEM* partner for iL2L.org, and with Cheryl Miller as acting iL2L.org Director for Europe, Zen Digital will deliver a comprehensive STEM leadership component to the five iL2L.org Young Women’s International Leader Summits taking place in 2013, and will organize a Munich event focusing specifically on leadership opportunities for young women in STEM.
The full 2013 calendar of upcomig global iL2L.org summits is as follows:
- 22-27 March: Entrepreneurship Summit at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy in Johannesburg, South Africa
- 16-22 June: Government & Diplomacy Summit in Washington, DC, USA
- 7-13 July: Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics Summit in Munich, Germany
- August: Environment & Sustainability Summit in Beijing, China
- 16-18 October: Executive Leadership Summit as part of the Women’s Forum Global Meeting in Deauville, France
Event Partners: If you represent an organization interested in sponsoring one or more of the 2013 iL2L.org events, or would like to partner with us to promote your female role model leaders and showcase cutting-edge STEM projects you are leading, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Given the vast and growing impact of STEM enterprises and industry on our lives and planet, and the severe under-representation of women in these fields, Laura Bode and Cheryl Miller, respective founders of iLive2Lead are Zen Digital Europe, see an important challenge here that they are both deeply committed to addressing.
“This partnership is unbelievably timely, the fit is really natural, and the people behind iLive2Lead are marvelous — which makes our hard and rewarding work also really fun,” says Cheryl of the new partnership. “We are all really excited about working together,” she adds.
