DECEMBER 2-4, 2010: Women and Girls 2010 Summit: Thriving in the New Economy
A new economy is emerging in the U.S. today, often referred to as a "Green Economy".  As Silicon Valley continues to lead the way in innovation, technology and economic opportunity in this new era, billions of dollars in funding to stimulate the economy, promote clean energy and reduced carbon emissions, and job creation are flowing into this region.  How will women and girls benefit from these investments?  Will these  resources provide new opportunities for women's business and career advancement or will it be "business as usual" where discrimination, disparity and inequity continue to plague women and girls?

Despite persistent challenges for women in the workplace and the worst economy in decades, women remain a vital force driving the global economy. Research shows that when we invest in education and training for women and girls, we not only see direct, measurable benefit to society, benefits are seen for future generations.  We have a unique opportunity to ensure that the emerging economy in Silicon Valley will provide advancement and greater economic security for all women and we are inviting 300 Silicon Valley leaders to join us!
