The STEM for Her Mission is to promote education to create awareness, excitement, and opportunities among girls and young women to launch successful STEM-related careers. Through direct exposure to hands-on experiences, mentors and role models and other programs, STEM for Her enables girls and young women to envision the path to an education and a career in STEM. We develop our own programs and partner with girl leaders, community organizations and corporations with a strong focus on the underserved populations in the Washington, DC Metro Area.
STEM for Her has helped thousands of girls and women in the metropolitan D.C. area learn about the exciting opportunities available to them in STEM-related careers. Each year, STEM for Her seeks to significantly expand outreach to underprivileged and underserved girls. With roots in the professional women in STEM sector, STEM for Her is committed to helping more young women across the greater Washington, D.C. region consider and flourish in STEM-related educational and career paths. Further funding will help STEM for Her broaden programs, including more hands-on exposure to the four STEM components – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – across all demographics in the region.
