STEM education co-founder Shree Bose to headline 4th annual "Empowering Girls for Life" event September 12


CHICAGO, July 26, 2021 – Shree Bose, co-founder of Piper, a STEM education company, will be one of the headline speakers at the fourth annual “Empowering Girls for Life,” a free event to be held virtually on September 12th.

Shree was the grand prize winner of the 2011 Google Science Fair for her research on the chemotherapy drug, cisplatin, taken by women with ovarian cancer. She is currently an MSTP student at Duke University School of Medicine after graduating from Harvard College. In 2014, she co-founded Piper, a STEM education company that creates computer engineering kits to teach children about engineering through the game of Minecraft.

“The purpose of the event is to reach out to young women and girls and to get the message out on motivating and empowering young girls to be the best that they can be,” said Empowering Girls for Life creator Bill Conroy. Conroy started the Beverly Bandits, a nationally recognized elite fast pitch softball team that has won numerous national championships and has sent more than 400 young women to Division 1 college scholarships over the last 20 years.

Empowering Girls for Life is committed to shifting the perception that women do not have the ability or opportunity to achieve as much as their male counterparts. By creating channels to meet, interact with and learn from diverse, high-profile women, Empowering Girls for Life aims to inspire and enable personal and professional success for girls and women everywhere.

The free virtual program will start at 8:30 AM CST and a complete schedule of events will be released in August.

ComEd not only provides electricity to approximately 4 million homes and businesses across northern Illinois, it supports programs that help young women pursue their interests in STEM-related education and be better prepared to join the workforce of tomorrow.
