CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 31, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Excel Village announced the Girls' STEM-FAB Power Summit Goes Virtual. How many women would have achieved so much more with the right help and connection? Many women find themselves shifting careers because they finally have the encouragement and network to help them follow the path they have always wanted. Excel Village is starting early by mentoring girls in grades 5th-12th, virtually.
"Our goal is to create leaders with positive futures for girls in grades 5th-12th by providing a curriculum of career planning, life-skills development with a focus on science, technology, engineering, math, finance, arts and business (STEM-FAB)," said Dr. Lisa Lindsay Wicker, Founder and CEO. Aside from mentoring girls within schools, Excel Village hosted the annual Excel Village Girl's STEM-FAB Power Summit on April 24th. Fifty girls received scholarships to attend the summit from across the USA representing more than 25 elementary, middle, and high schools. Girls were not only introduced and exposed to the field of STEM and its possibilities and future impact, they also received scholarships to fuel their learning in Finance, Arts, and Business (STEM-FAB). "We are fortunate to have Macy's Corporate Giving as Title Sponsor of this event as we strive to enhance the lives of youth through mentoring, scholarship and education," said Wicker.
"Macy's is committed to working with organizations such as Excel Village to give back and 'Make Life Shine Brighter' through service to our communities," said Patrick Malambri, II, Vice President and Manager for Macy's Northlake and SouthPark Stores. "We are proud to support organizations like Excel Village and to be an integral part of the local communities we serve as an employer, as a hub for both connection and commerce, and as a responsible corporate citizen."
