Changing the Game for Girls in STEM: Findings on High Impact Programs and System-Building Strategies


"Girls of color are growing up in innovation hotbeds like Silicon Valley and Washington D.C., yet many never consider careers in science, technology, engineering or math ("STEM") due to lack of encouragement and opportunity. Meanwhile, jobs in STEM are growing at an unprecedented rate, and companies are scrambling to build diversity in their workforce. Closing the achievement gap will open up a tremendous untapped pool of talent. The emerging movement to engage girls and minorities in STEM has had a hard time really moving the needle. This paper draws upon interviews with leaders in education and STEM and spotlights best practices to foster diversity and inclusion in the workforce."
