Women sharing personal & professional stories at www.HotMommasProject.org before midnight, January 31 ET, 2010 will be automatically entered into drawings for the following FABULOUS PRIZES (if we do say do ourselves). By writing your story, you are helping educate an entire generation of girls and women. So, why not reward these pay-it-forward women with some SWAG? Oh, and p.s., the winners will be published in a MAJOR Prentice Hall Textbook (Prentice Hall = world’s leading educational publisher).
What is the Hot Mommas Project? How can I get involved?
The Hot Mommas Project is an award-winning venture housed at the George Washington University School of Business. We make women’s stories teachable using our “case wizard” at www.HotMommasProject.org . The Hot Mommas Project library is the first of its kind, providing scalable, global access to role models and virtual mentors that can be used by educators, trainers, and parents. We’ve been featured in Prentice Hall textbooks, the Washington Post, NPR and are the winner of a national Coleman Foundation case award.
How you can get involved: Write your story, or nominate a dynamic woman 18 or older.
Our 2010 case study competition is live through midnight (Eastern Time) January 31, 2010. Nominated women come online, write their story using our “case wizard,” and click “publish” to be permanently archived in our case library. Winners will be published in a leading Prentice Hall textbook and honored at GWU’s April 28 Women in Philanthropy Forum. To participate, nominate a dynamic woman 18 or older (yourself included) here or find us on Twitter. No, you do not need to be a mom.
