"The IU 21st Century Scholars Program-Pass the Torch for Women initiative is truly a unique partnership at Indiana University Bloomington that has made a significant impact in the lives of our women students," said Roy Y. Chan, special projects coordinator of the IU 21st Century Scholars Program & Ph.D. candidate at the School of Education, Indiana University Bloomington. "At the IU 21st Century Scholars Program, we are deeply committed to the academic and career success of our Scholars and we believe that this collaborative effort supported by the IU Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (OVPDEI) and the IU Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion (OVPDI) will only continue to expand as we seek to prepare college female graduates for senior leadership roles in our globally competitive market economy."
"Our partnership with the IU 21st Century Scholars Program is particularly unique, where we seek to empower young women to complete their college education, successfully transition to the workplace, and to develop communication and leadership skills," said Samantha Burke, National Program Director for Pass the Torch for Women Foundation. "Through our initiative, we were able to give female IU 21st Century Scholars a jumpstart on creating a network of supporters, which I believe is a critical factor in growing their careers.

8 Scholars Traveled to IU Lugar Center, U.S. House of Representatives, and U.S. Department of State during Spring Break Week in Washington, D.C.
On March 11-14, 2018, the IU 21st Century Scholars Program in collaboration with the IU Walter Center for Career Achievement invited 8 distinguished scholars during spring break week to participate in the inaugural "2018 Washington D.C. Career Trek." During our trip, Scholars had the opportunity to network with several distinguished IU alumni and industry experts in government service, non-governmental organizations, and think tanks across multiple careers in business administration, finance, environment, political science, international affairs, performing arts, and education. Scholars also visited the IU Lugar Center, U.S. House of Representatives, Bureau of Labor and Statistics, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and U.S. Department of State. Additionally, Scholars had the opportunity to interact with leading policymakers and practitioners in Washington, D.C., including POLITICO Live, Director of National Intelligence, The Hoover Institute, Cross-Border Health Dialogue, and the National Security Council.
"There is so much goodwill for IU in Washington, D.C.," said Karen M. Franks, an academic advisor of IU 21st Century Scholars Program who assisted Scholars during the trip. "Every day we met more people and learned about how to connect with IU alums and D.C. jobs. People were very generous with their time and keen to share their love of IU with our Scholars as well as how their IU education prepared them for their careers in D.C. The most striking aspect for me was everyone's commitment to the mission. We met passionate people from all kinds of positions. The best take away was from Simona Lightfoot of POLITICO Live who challenged Scholars to 'know your why'. That is important for our Scholars as they enter the career arena."
Roy Y. Chan, special projects coordinator of IU 21st Century Scholars Program & Ph.D. candidate in the School of Education of Indiana University Bloomington, praised the Scholars who took the initiative to participate in this unique trip. "Giving Scholars the opportunity to be exposed to leading policy advocates and analysts within the federal government is a unique way of bringing their current IU undergraduate courses to real life. Our department strives to engage Scholars with real-world opportunities that will further advance their academic and career goals at Indiana University Bloomington. We are so thrilled to have partnered with the IU Walter Center for Career Achievement for this extraordinary event."
