The participants in the Women Count Conference will be selected from the applications of experienced and prospective program directors. Team entries that pair an experienced director with a prospective director from the same geographic region are encouraged because this enhances the opportunities for continued mentoring following the conference. Preference will be given to those who have not been given the opportunity to participate in previous Women Count Conferences. Support for participants consists of a $350 stipend to help defray the costs of travel and lodging. This conference will include a workshop on grant writing, and breakout sessions for programs for high school students versus those with a middle school focus. This year's Women Count conference will also address methods of assessing programs. Representatives from the National Security Agency, Mathematical Association of America-Tensor Foundation, and the National Science Foundation will be invited to speak on their programs that assist and support mathematics outreach activities
