We are excited to announce the 6th Annual HerWorld Conference presented by DeVry University and their dedicated sponsors. The full day sessions will give high school students the opportunity to meet other young women their age, work with their peers in team-building exercises, set personal goals, and learn about exciting career opportunities in a variety of fields.

Developed by DeVry University, HerWorld introduces young women to the breadth of career opportunities available in business and technology. Consistent with the ongoing statewide emphasis on attracting individuals into non-traditional careers, this program has been developed to complement these efforts.

The conference will be held on Tuesday, December 7, 2010 at the Denver Merchandise Mart. The event has been a great success over the years reaching up to and over 500 attendees. DeVry University will be providing the venue, lunch and transportation for the young women. We are also looking for business partners for this event. Currently we have needs in two areas:

• Business Partners to provide science and technology related workshops. In the past some of the workshops included:

1. Challenger – Students were able to try on space gear and hear firsthand about space missions.
2. Build your own Simon Game – presented by Sparkfun Electronics, the students were able to work hands on to assemble an electronic game (including soldering).
3. Heartlab – The Denver Museum of Nature and Science donated animal hearts for the students to dissect.
4. CSI Crimelab – Students were able to perform hands on forensic testing and investigations.

• Contributing Sponsors who may be able to provide us with in-kind donations to be used as door prizes and/or promotional materials for both the young women in attendance and the educators who will be in attendance. Some of the donated items last year included: gift baskets, blankets, sweatshirts, gift cards, school supplies, various miscellaneous giveaways and a computer.

It is our intention that HerWorld continue to be presented annually to the benefit of young women in Colorado. Our sponsors and supporters will have the opportunity for long-term affiliation with this important event. We hope that you will consider partnering with us on this important event
