48 Women from 48 Countries:

Empowering Women Leaders in STEM

In October, the US Department of State implemented a ground-breaking, 3-week exchange program. The program, #HiddenNoMore, brought 48 women from 48 different countries to the US to discuss empowering women leaders in science, technology, engineering and math. The program was inspired by the 21st Century Fox's film Hidden Figures, so it was only appropriate that the group concluded their three-week adventure in Hollywood. IVCLA was honored to arrange the itinerary for the group's weeklong stay in Los Angeles and was thrilled to partner with 21CF to arrange an exciting day for the group on the Fox Studio Lot.
