  • Women In Novation

    GRAMMY Museum Experience Prudential Center

    =SPACE is pushing out its most ambitious event yet Women In Novation at the Grammy Museum, you are both the best in informing the community and of course are on the Vip list ! Below can you see if you can spread the word. I also can’t begin to thank you enough for the support you give =SPACE, Thank you for spreading the word for Women-In-Novation on March 30, 2019. Women-In-Novation is an annual event that celebrates the achievement of all women. Our mission statement focuses on the belief that access to resources can lead to great opportunities. The main purpose of my asking you to help us spread the word is to ensure that women all across the city and the tri-state area are well aware of the opportunities that =SPACE and so many other organizations and institutions want to give to women who have aspirations. Our two previous events were huge hits for everyone who attended. Now, we want to make this event grander by involving the upcoming generations! ABOUT THE EVENT The word innovate derives from the Latin word , “innovatus”, past participle of innovare "to renew, restore; to change,". Woman In-Novation fully encapsulates the true derivative of Innovation. We desire to CHANGE the pace of conversations involving women; it is time for us to take charge of the narrative of a woman, of the word, “feminine”, of our future. We are no longer waiting to be “added” to the table; whether that means molding more Latinas and Black women to enter the field of tech and excel or opening up discussions about trans-women and how they WANT to fit in the milieu of feminism. This is a woman’s world and we have given toxic masculinity and femininity their eviction notice.
