An all day conference to introduce seventh and eighth grade girls to various career opportunities and the way to achieve career goals with workshops provided by successful women in professions such as Medical and Science; Law and Legal; Finance and Technology; and Entrepreneurship.
SIR works with Riverside Unified School District (RUSD), Alvord Unified School District (AUSD), and Jurupa Unified School District (JUSD) to identify 7th and 8th grade girls who would benefit from this conference. The conference is designed to help young girls identify the steps they need to take to reach their dreams.
The young ladies will hear "dream" stories directly from women in various industries.
"Professional women should be the first to give back to the young women in our community," says Veronica Forest, whose dream was to create a conferemce like the one we have today. "We are giving these ladies a road map to the future. There is no GPS for life, but there are certainly women who have been there before and can help navigate the twists and turns."
In order for Soroptimist International Riverside to sponsor future conferences, we need your help. It costs approximately $100 per student to put the conference together. Please sponsor a girl for Soroptimist International of Riverside's Live Your Dream Conference.
