Announcing #GirlsLeadSTEM – A New, Collective Voice for STEM Equity

While women have made gains in STEM career fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), persistent gaps remain. The U.S. continues to fall short in empowering young women to lead the way, especially those who have been historically under-represented. Until now.

We are thrilled to announce that in October 2022, #GirlsLeadSTEM, a new national, multi-sector effort will elevate the diverse voices of young women and girls in STEM. Together, we will celebrate the girls who lead their STEM journeys and empower them to raise their voices to inspire each other and share their perspectives on what’s needed to close the gaps in STEM equity.

Throughout October, we will lead a social media campaign to amplify the diverse voices of girls involved in STEM projects and fields from across the U.S. Join us at
