Jasper Breakout Sessions
Participants will attend a variety of interactive discussion panels and breakout sessions. These breakouts will be delivered by various successful women that represent a variety of careers and personal choices. These women are experts on issues that high school girls are currently facing. The sessions will teach important skills needed to be successful in the workforce and ways to develop their leadership potential.
The percentage of women in STEM–related (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers is lower compared to men in the same fields.

Come hear from a panel of successful women with very different backgrounds tell of their career journey and get insight into the possibilities of careers in STEM-related fields.

HeartMath is a beautiful tool that when used empowers us to step back from stressful or negative situations by shifting our attention from the mind to the heart. Doing so routinely throughout the day can prevent or even reverse the body’s normal destructive stress response and the physical and mental wear and tear that stress has on our bodies. The science behind HeartMath is real – simply stated, the messages our heart sends to the brain directly affect our perceptions, mental processes, and performance.
