Career Girls inspires and educates girls to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) and beyond. Career Girls built and continues to expand the largest girl-focused online career knowledgebase, featuring 11,000+ videos of diverse women who are accomplished in their professions. This project will amplify our work and bring STEM career resources and inspiration to even more girls.
Girls don't pursue STEM as often as boys & young men do in large part because they don't see females in these roles. The "imagination gap" (the difference between career choices that girls imagine for themselves and the range of careers actually available for them to pursue based on their interests) is still too common. Girls, particularly those in underserved communities, may not see themselves in STEM positions and may not know that particular careers even exist. Career Girls is changing this.
Career Girls offers and expands an online platform with: over 600 diverse women role models, life skills lessons including leadership and confidence building, college tips, and STEM career guides. We do this so that every girl can dream big and reach her full potential.
You need to see it to achieve it. By giving girls access to women role models, you help them imagine themselves in STEM roles and give them confidence and resources to pursue these dreams. Quite simply, your investment in this project can change girls' lives and bring more women into STEM careers.
