Women-in-STEM youth leaders
#femSTEM encourage girls to engage with STEM concepts and eliminate the gender gap that exists between men and women in STEM careers and education. Nearly as many women have undergraduate degrees as men, but women only make up about 30% of STEM degree holders. Women comprised 47% of the U.S. work force in 2015, but only 24% of jobs in the STEM sector. #femSTEM provides our female students with a safe space to explore STEM concepts, work collaboratively, and ignite interest in STEM degrees and careers.
We are looking for female STEM professionals to connect with the girls in #femSTEM across our 6 school sites in Dallas. Volunteer opportunities can include:
-Speaking to students about your career and educational journey
-Participating in hands-on STEM activities with students
-Hosting a work-site visit
Volunteer opportunities are ongoing. We will work with you to determine the best school site and date for you or your team!
