Mentor Fireworks! A National Webinar from the NGCP and Million Women Mentors
The National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) and Million Women Mentors (MWM) are working together to spotlight the importance of role models and mentors for empowering girls and young women to actively pursue STEM education and careers. Since launching in January 2014, over 60,000 pledges have been made to mentor girls and youth through the MWM site. With over 50 major partners reaching over 25 million girls and 22 national sponsors, the MWM initiative is actively working toward making a difference. NGCP facilitates collaboration between 12,800 organizations (who serve 8.35 million girls and 4.5 million boys) through their network of 31 Collaboratives, serving 39 states. Through this network of Collaboratives and initiatives like the FabFems Project (a national directory of female STEM role models), the NGCP is bringing together organizations throughout the United States that inform and encourage girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Join this webinar to learn more about the initiative and the activities and events occurring across the country. Through mentor stories and flash presentations from the NGCP Collaborative networks, learn more about how the NGCP, a founding partner of the MWM initiative, is taking on the challenge of one million mentors in STEM professions over the next four years.
