Thank you, @wonderwomentech for allowing @thebeacondc to partner and produce two panels focused on increasing women’s access to STEAM. Through “Towards Inclusive Tech: Building Ecosystems with Intentionality” and “She Can Code, Too: Increasing Cross-Generational Access to STEM,” @thebeacondc amplified women’s voices and shared strategic + actionable advice for creating and sustaining diversity in fields underrepresented by women and minorities.

@wework SE + @wework Chinatown are our stops this week — with @wework Wonderbread, @in3dc, @thehive2.0 and @wework K St. coming up in the weeks to come! Visit bit.ly/2mLP6Qx for more info!

The Mentorship Roadshow is a great example of BEACON’s purpose. Just a few months ago, three women - all entrepreneurs in their own right - responded to BEACON’s request for innovative and collaborative programming that would directly meet the needs of DC’s women founders.

.
In answering the call, @hera_hub_dc, @innovatorsbox and @12PointFive organized the Mentorship Roadshow as a way for women business owners to connect one-on-one with mentors across various stages of business development. From ideation, to startup, to scale & exit, participants gained advice, made new connections and most importantly - realized they were not alone.

Thanks so much to the event organizers + participants for a phenomenal event! And, special thanks for letting BEACON join to help source insights and recommendations for improving DC’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
