I had the pleasure of attending the RockIt Science and Systers Celebration at the Maryland Science Center at Baltimore Harbor sponsored by Google, Microsoft, and RSA. This center was amazing! There were plenty of exhibits to see as well as many inspirational speakers. Many of these women were my peers, but had so many encouraging and positive words! It was great to hear their stories and accomplishments as they continue on their career paths.
In addition to the speakers, guests were able to let their hair down and enjoy great music and sample delicious gourmet desserts. Also, as a bonus, Google and Microsoft had great giveaways as tokens for attending. I'll have to say the desserts, the t-shirts,and new friends I met were the highlights of this event!
All in all, while this event proved to be uplifting, it did allow for all these wonderful women some time to relax and have fun!
