'Brave Women 
Daring to Teach Entrepreneurship Boldly'

Monday, January 30th
2:15 - 3:15 PM
Room 16B 

Learn how women from three districts are role models for female students by implementing CTE entrepreneurship pathways with rigor and authenticity.  Females typically shy away from Entrepreneurship/STEM programs, and the reality is that women in these programs bring important skill sets such as innovation and executive function.  Entrepreneurship is particularly valuable because of the real-life skills it develops no matter the career path students choose.
