“Make Noise: GRRRL GRIT Electronics Workshop”
To help our community “Make Noise” GRCB will run our “Grrrl Grit” workshops in October. During this two part intergenerational workshop participants learn how to solder and create their own contact microphone and custom effects pedal. With studies reporting that only 7.7% of electrical engineers in the United States are women, we are excited to offer a workshop led by female and non-binary engineers, in partnership with the Edgerton Center at MIT. By providing youth and adults access to mentors and hands on experiences working in STEAM, we are working to break barriers and change the way they think about their potential. Come back soon for more info and to register!
“Speak Up: Intersectional Feminism not ‘White Feminism.’ Strengthening your Practice.”
During this intergenerational social-justice workshop participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the intersectionality of their lives and gain tools to:
- advocate for gender equality that includes women and girls of color
- develop programming/ communications that are accessible to all women and girls (including those who live with all levels of disability & socio-economic status)
- develop skills to engage and build relationships with all types of women and girls
Most importantly, participants will walk away with activities to help them keep this work going.
This workshop was led by Tracie Jones, the Assistant Director for Student Diversity and Inclusion Programs at Harvard Graduate School of Education.
