About #GirlsLeadSTEM

While women have made gains in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) career fields, persistent gaps remain. The U.S. continues to fall short in empowering young women to lead the way, especially those who are marginalized. Until now. #GirlsLeadSTEM will celebrate the girls who lead their STEM journeys and empower them to raise their voices to inspire each other and share what’s still needed to close gaps in STEM equity.

Thanks to our partners and sponsors for making this event possible!
