“We believe that every girl should feel a STEM career is attainable.”
Girls in STEM is a nonprofit organization designed to empower middle school and high school girls in the metro Denver area to seek out a STEM career post secondary education. We achieve this by connecting them with a network of professional women working in STEM industries who are visible and accessible to serve as role models and/or mentors. These interactive, face-to-face encounters are the most powerful way for girls to visualize themselves in a similar career.
Our program is facilitated through after school club chapters with roundtable discussions, handson
activities, field trips, job shadowing and mentorship experiences in addition to leadership and speaking opportunities. We also provide community events open to all girls in the metro Denver area including networking socials, coding camps, documentary screenings and more! Girls in STEM is looking for female STEM professionals and STEM focused businesses interested in making a difference by getting involved through our chapters and community events. You can be part of the workforce equation and help strengthen the talent pool by increasing the number of women who pursue a STEM career.
If you are interested in sharing your time, talent and resources as a professional and/or community partner, please contact our Executive Director, Wendy Merchant; [email protected] If you are not able to get involved but would still like to support our program, please consider a donation to support our programs.
