Conferences for Girls

AAUW branches across the state sponsor or co-sponsor Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conferences for middle and high school girls that provide hands-on experience with STEM-related activities that are led by professional women who are active in their field.  These conferences are generally held at area colleges to give the girls a campus experience.

AAUW-WA branches that sponsor or co-sponsor an EYH or other science program for girls include Dayton, Federal Way, Gig Harbor, Issaquah, Kirkland-Redmond, Lake Washington, Lewis County, Seattle, Southeast King County, Tacoma, Tri-Cities, Vancouver, and Walla Walla.  See the List of Conferences or the branch locator page for contact information.

Another example of conferences for girls is the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders that is held in the Washington D.C. area every year.  Financial assistance may be available from local AAUW-WA branches or from the state.
