Feb. 17, 24 & Mar. 17, 2018: Volunteers Needed for 3 STEM Diversity Events at the Franklin Institute

We are reaching out to you to see if you and your team might be interested in
participating in an upcoming event at The Franklin Institute that strives to raise awareness of the diversity in the sciences.

As part of a broader strategy to celebrate diversity year-round, we plan to host events that showcase both contributions of visionary scientists and engineers who were among the minority in their fields as well as the current local professionals who have followed in their footsteps.

Interested in inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers?
Looking for a great outreach experience for your team?
We need your help!

We want to make sure that guests have the opportunity to interact with and be inspired by the diversity among current STEM professionals. We hope that you would consider providing a hands-on activity at one or more of the programs, which are as follows:
 Color of Science – February 17, 2018
 Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day – February 24, 2018
 Women in Science – March 17, 2018

Additional details and next steps:
 Events run 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and each activity should have no fewer
than two people staffing them at a time. You are welcome to split the day
with your team.
 Don’t have an activity in mind? No problem! We’re happy to help and can
either provide something for your team or coach you as you develop one.
 Interested in participating in one or more of the events? Email me with your interest at mmaley@fi.edu.
 We will host a prep call for all participating partners two weeks prior to
each event to review the programs and ensure that you have the information
you need to make the day a success!

Please let me know if you would be interested and available join us or would enjoy the opportunity to discuss this further. We look forward to working with you!
