A recent mini-grant in the Colorado Collaborative for Girls in STEM facilitated a partnership that focused on racial equity in a girls' STEM summer camp. The two partner organizations, the Dr. Justina Ford STEM Institute, which primarily serves African American girls in Denver, and the Civil Rights-based Equity Assistance Center (EAC), housed at Metropolitan State University of Denver, worked together to increase girls’ confidence in science through a focus on health – both their own and their community’s. This webinar features the perspectives of both organizations – shared by Deborah Fard of the Justina Ford Institute and Janelle Johnson of the EAC – on what the partnership was able to accomplish and lessons learned that may be helpful to other STEM programs that include girls from underrepresented communities.
