Experts: National Girls Collaborative Project
This webinar is the first in a three-part series of webinars focused on STEM role models for afterschool networks and programs, presented by the National Girls Collaborative. Exposure to diverse STEM role models can broaden girls’ perceptions of STEM careers and dispel stereotypes about who does STEM. The presenters will provide an overview of STEM role models, benefits of incorporating role models into STEM programs for girls, and resources and strategies for identifying and engaging role models. In preparation for the webinar, participants are encouraged to think about how they currently use (or do not use) role models in their network or program, and identify challenges to incorporating STEM role models.
Audience: Network Leads and STEM/Moonshot Staff
