US: Girls in STEM


We have set up partnerships with four non-profit groups in the US, to encourage girls to study STEM, and choose it as a career. We are reaching over 1,000 school-age girls through the Girl Space STEM programme run by the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago & Northwest Indiana; 200 girls are taking part in the 12-week TechGYRLS initiative organised by the YWCA of Metropolitan Chicago; 250 high-school girls are enrolled in the Gaining Knowledge, Making Strides programme run by the Step Up Women’s Network; and the Society of Women Engineers has an Aspire Outreach scheme, which aims to connect thousands of successful women engineers to girls throughout the country.
