In the spirit of International Women's Day 2019 theme: Think equal, build smart, innovate for change, MET is honored to host an International Women's Conference aimed at empowering and uplifting our girls and women, socially, emotionally, and holistically. Within two panel discussions that will include our youth and professional women in our community, we seek to understand the challenges women face today and honor their voice and their role in today's society.
