It's already been 5 months since FIRST Ladies launched back in June. In that short period of time, we've already reached nearly 200 members in the Facebook group, including girls from all over the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, and several FIRST and FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA employees. The response to this group has been overwhelming in the best way, and shows how much we can do when we join together to change the world.
And now, for a big announcement! FIRST Ladies has been asked by members of the FIRST AmeriCorps VISTA program to work with them on their brand new Girls Collaborative Project. They will be hosting a Google Hangout on Friday, December 12th at 5 PM Central Time for members of FIRST Ladies about their experiences as women in STEM. If you are interested in attending this hangout, make sure to put your email on this list, and keep and eye out for an event notification in the Facebook group!
Nothing FIRST Ladies does would be possible without all of the amazing people who support and contribute to everything we do. Getting a positive influence out to girls in STEM is one of the most important things anyone can do, and there is any army of people ready to do it. Thank you to everyone who continues to push for girls in FIRST, your efforts are so important!
As we look to the next five months, FIRST Ladies will be expand our presence on social media. We will be creating an Instagram and would love to post your pictures! If you want us to incorporate your pictures, use the hash tag #FIRSTLadiesinSTEM and tag us. We are also in the process of updating the map (found on the home page). Let us know if your team or school isn't on the map by sending us an email or Facebook post. Here's to another 5 months, thank you for supporting FIRST Ladies!
