Announcing coalition to recruit 1 Million Women Mentors for STEM!
First of all we would like to thank everyone who tuned-in the afternoon for the Women's History Month Nat'l Town Hall on Women in STEM. We'd especially like to thank all of the amazing speakers who participated! I'd like to give a special shout-out to everyone who tweeted along too! We will be getting up the audio and presentation slides soon for anyone who couldn't attend.
In addition to hearing from leading women in STEM during the call, we also made a big announcement. Through a colloboration with NGCP, Girl Scouts, Girls Inc., AAUW, SWE and others, we will be commiting over the next 3 years to build a network of 1 million women mentors in STEM to connect with over 10 million girls and young women across the country!
We will be recruiting mentors from the private sector, government agencies, state STEM networks, non-profits, and educational institutions around the nation!
