A Path to Equity: Girls, STEM, a Moonshot

Mar 9, 2022

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

It’s no secret that generations of persisting gender norms, barriers to entry and stereotypes have led to a lack of representation of women, particularly women of color in STEM. The time for accepting the status quo is over. Join STEM Next and NASA in a moonshot to build equity and inclusion in STEM. Youth voices and community and nonprofit leaders will discuss how STEM programs outside of the classroom are creating opportunities and opening doors for girls in communities across the country.
