Meet an Expert: The Energetic Side of Engineering

Girl Scouts of all ages are invited to meet engineer, advocate, historian, lifetime Girl Scout, and champion of all women, Jill Tietjen, on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 from 4 – 5 p.m.

Registration closes September 15.

As a professional engineer, Jill spent more than 40 years in the electric utility industry and was the national president of the Society of Women Engineers and the first woman to serve on the board of directors of the Rocky Mountain Electrical League and its first female president. Jill was on the board of Girl Scouts – Mile Hi Council from 1999 – 2007 and was board chair from 2003 – 2007. She is also an inductee of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame and the Colorado Author’s Hall of Fame, and a Girl Scout Woman of Distinction. Today, Jill is an advocate for women and girls in STEM fields and the president and CEO of Technically Speaking, Inc.

During this webinar Jill will speak to girls about her education, career, and what life is like working as a woman in STEM. She will also walk girls through a lesson on energy consumption and how the electric utility industry functions. After her presentation, girls will have an opportunity to participate in a live Q&A.

This is an amazing opportunity for girls of all ages to learn about energy from one of Colorado’s top women in STEM.

We will use Zoom to host this webinar. All information on how to join online or via phone will be emailed out to registrants the day before the webinar. Each individual participant should be registered so we can track participation. Please do not share the information on how to join with others who have not registered. The webinar will be recorded and posted to GSCO’s YouTube channel for girls to access in the future.

Participating in this webinar will fulfill partial requirements for the new STEM Career Exploration badges for Brownies, Juniors, and Cadettes.
