We Knock Barriers Down to Build Girls Up.

DemoChicks Breaking Barriers Awards and 2nd Anniversary Celebration

Join our First-Ever Hybrid Fundraising Event, as we award scholarships to five college students pursuing careers in Architecture, Construction, and Engineering (ACE) fields and recognize dynamic women leaders in the ACE industry.

 

IN-PERSON RECEPTION - 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM: Our uniquely curated experience will include an IN-PERSON reception held at Hotel Maya for our DemoScholars, Breaking Barriers honorees, and sponsors, following COVID-19 safety precautions in an outdoor venue for safe distancing and interaction.

FREE LIVE-STREAM - 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM: We will also LIVE-STREAM a portion of the celebration for our DemoChicks community to join the fun, congratulate our new cohort of DemoScholars, learn more about our dynamic honorees and participate in our unique DemoChicks Experi-Minute happening during the event.

DemoChicks understands that it is within our power to address the learning gap and disparity of women in ACE careers. But it requires investment in both education and opportunities for girls and women.

Supporting DemoChicks offers the opportunity to play an important role in harnessing the promise and possibility of young women and girls of color. Through your sponsorship, you will demonstrate your leadership to advance equitable outcomes for girls and women who are underrepresented in STEM fields.

DemoChicks empowers young women and girls who represent diversity in age, country of origin, industry sector, and education level. We also aim to specifically engage girls and women of color who are drastically underrepresented in STEM and ACE fields. As a sponsor, you will be recognized as a company that cares about the well-being of this community and the expansion of all our Signature Programs to broaden our reach to more girls and women. You will have the unique opportunity to increase your organizational visibility and mission with an audience comprised of girls and women, and the people who are invested in their growth.

 

Rising to the Meet the Pandemic Moment.

In 2020, DemoChicks pivoted our DemoChicks On-Location training online to supplement students’ needs during virtual learning where many schools focused solely on Math and English Language Arts. As schools reopen, DemoChicks’ programming will help address STEM-oriented learning loss by providing quality supplemental and co-curricular instruction. Additionally, the pandemic highlighted the pervasiveness of women and women of color’s concentration in low-wage, service work which increased their vulnerability to the coronavirus. DemoChicks’ programming addresses this opportunity gap by creating a pipeline for women in high-earning 21st Century STEM and ACE careers. DemoChicks educational and mentorship programming will help facilitate long-term pandemic recovery by increasing women’s economic opportunity in growing career fields.
