Northern Ky. Chamber plans Girls Day Out with local science, tech, engineering firms

Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is currently coordinating STEM Girls Day Out, which will be hosted at various local businesses on June 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This event is designed to promote STEM careers, or Science, Technology, Engineering and Math careers for young female students from the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati area.
This event, targeting female students from grades four through eight, will provide young women with an opportunity to tour a local company and gain in-depth knowledge on specific career paths. Each student will be assigned to a specific location, all of which will be confirmed in early June. It is asked that on the morning of the event, each student is dropped off at their designated location. Directions will be provided to participants via email.
“Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is extremely excited to host this event geared towards young women in the area,” said Amanda Dixon, director of Workforce Talent Solutions at the Chamber. “We believe that by stimulating female students’ interest in STEM careers, we are also supplementing the work to meet workforce demands of local businesses.”
The event is free and lunch is included. Students can register by visiting here. Space for this event is limited and is based on the number of companies participating. The event sponsors are Duke Energy, Toyota and Gateway Community and Technical College. STEM Girls Day Out is a program in partnership with the Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative Project.
