ABOUT THE EVENT

The event will promote the philanthropic work of Pass the Torch for Women Foundation, a 501(c)(3) that forges meaningful mentoring relationships to improve workforce development, diversity, and inclusion initiatives. The Foundation has partnered with Bay Path University through The American Women’s College to provide support to female college students through mentorship and professional development. The event will highlight the Strada Education Grant collaboration of both partners and the great work in the community to uplift women.
Panels and Keynote Speakers will focus specifically on supporting and promoting women in cybersecurity, with a focus of how mentorship can guide the current generation of leaders and inspire future professionals.
Guests will enjoy a plated luncheon (menu listed below) and walk away feeling inspired to “pass the torch” to others. 
Listen, enjoy, and join us in the movement to advance women!

With the expected snow showers, please plan accordingly. The event will begin promptly at 11:30am. Thank you!​
