Please join us Friday, March 24, 2023 at the Ebell of Los Angeles for the Annual #LaunchHERfuture Women’s Leadership Breakfast. This annual fundraiser is a unique event where we honor local and national leaders in the STEM industry, education, and advocacy who are making a difference in advancing opportunities for girls and young women. You and your colleagues will have the opportunity to interact with GALA Scholars as they showcase projects in a GALA Gallery Exhibition. The program also includes a STEM-focused panel discussion featuring our Award Honorees, GALA Scholars, and our Founder and Principal, Dr. Liz Hicks. 

For event sponsorship, learn more here. For questions about tickets and sponsorships, please email LHF@fogala.org
