National Girls Collaborative



The National Girls Collaborative Project

We are a network of networks. The National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) brings together organizations committed to informing and encouraging girls to pursue careers in STEM. 

NGCP connects, creates, and collaborates with advocates for transformative change to advance the agenda in gender equity and expand girls’ participation in STEM. For 20 years, we have been transforming STEM.
