Pamela Kan, president of Bishop-Wisecarver Group, has served on numerous state and national level boards that support STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) efforts specifically designed to encourage young women, helped her company gain woman-owned certification as a WBENC-Certified Women’s Business Enterprise in 2011, and leads her successful company in supporting numerous community educational and mentoring programs.
The Astra S.T.E.A.M. Summit is an interactive two-day conference for young women ages 12-17 with interest in STEAM subjects and entrepreneurship. Astra S.T.E.A.M. supports STEAMers through their professional journey after the conference by connecting those young women to their peers, women entrepreneurs, and women in STEAM careers.
The Demystifying Entrepreneurship Panel which will include Kan, gives STEAMers the opportunity to interact with entrepreneurs from a variety of different industries and provides a creative, multi-lesson format for showcasing the important characteristics and traits of successful entrepreneurs.
