The Silicon Valley Leadership Group regularly holds The Young Women’s and Young Men’s Leadership Summits to help empower young girls and boys from local under-resourced schools. These events bring together adults from local companies and non-profit organizations to mentor students and explore careers in the science, technology, engineering and math fields .

Every year approximately 400 middle school girls and 150 female executives attend the Young Women’s Leadership Summit, a conference that encourages middle school girls to pursue careers in STEM fields and leadership. Throughout the day, students listen to women share inspirational stories and participate in a hands-on STEM activity. Past keynotes include Maria Shriver, Four-time Olympian and Stanford athlete, Brenda Villa, and Attorney General Kamala Harris.
