Washington DC Chapter: Annual Philanthropy Event (Virtual)
WEN DC Annual Philanthropy Event- Honoring STEM for Her
Please join WEN-DC Chapter and a representative from STEM for Her (https://www.stemforher.org/) to honor the great work they do for girls and young women in DC. STEM for Her is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that empowers women and girls to change the world by providing scholarships and financial support to programs that foster interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) related careers.
Women and girls are vastly underrepresented in STEM fields despite their talent and potential to be successful in these areas. While women make up more than half the population, they account for only 24 percent of the STEM workforce. Influential organizations like STEM for Her are striving to bridge the gender gap to create a stronger and more globally competitive and productive workforce.
The STEM for Her Mission is to promote education to create awareness, excitement, and opportunities among girls and young women to launch successful STEM-related careers. Through direct exposure to hands-on experiences, mentors and role models and other programs, STEM for Her enables girls and young women to envision the path to an education and a career in STEM. They develop their own programs and partner with girl leaders, community organizations and corporations with a strong focus on the undeserved populations in the Washington, DC Metro Area.
