The workshop will be held Wednesday, Aug. 8, and is open to anyone who works with girls or is interested in how the new project will support girls and girl-serving organizations in Montana. 

Anyone is welcome to attend, including representatives from businesses, non-profits and government, as well as teachers, counselors, administrators and staff from K-12, higher education and informal education.

The keynote speaker is Lisa Regalla of SciGirls, an Emmy award-winning PBS series based on best practices for STEM education for girls.
