Oregon Girls Collaborative Project

The Oregon Girls Collaborative Project brings together organizations throughout Oregon that are committed to informing and motivating girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Our Goals

OGCP works to strengthen capacity, increase continuation of girl-serving STEM programs, and create more champions for gender-equality in STEM education and careers. 

  1. Establish clear network of girl-serving programs across the state while documenting community & program needs.
  2. Establish support system that includes expanding access to shared resources within and across programs, public and private sector organizations and institutions interested in expanding girls’ participation in STEM.
  3. Use the leverage of the network of girl-serving STEM programs to increase awareness and promote gender equity in STEM.
  4. Strengthen capacity of existing and evolving projects by establishing and sharing exemplary practice research, program models, outcomes, and products.
  5. Support program design that intentionally attracts, engages and retains girls and fosters their interest and skills in STEM.
  6. Advocate to build more consistent STEM funding opportunities and standards for girl-serving collaborations.
