Local Collaboratives host a variety of events for STEM practitioners including girl-serving organizations, K-12 formal and informal educators, higher education faculty, industry and business leaders, and government.

New Collaboratives begin with a Kick-Off Conference to announce the project and to begin networking among participants. A Collaboration Forum is held to share strategies for successful partnerships and provide planning time for collaborative mini-grant projects.

Collaboratives also host Professional Development Forums providing exemplary practices and strategies, highlighting local programs and resources, and continue the valuable networking experience.

Once mini-grants are complete, Collaboratives hold a Collaboration Conference. At this conference, grantees will have an opportunity to present their projects to a large group. Collaborative successes are shared and additional networking and professional development activities are offered at this event.

In addition to in-person events, the National Leadership Team hosts free webinars to present effective programs and exemplary practices for working with girls in STEM, including current research, program models and useful resources.

"My participation in NGCP events has been tremendously beneficial. The information I’ve received is relevant and pertinent to my work goals related to STEM programming. Before working with the NGCP it was time consuming and exhausting to navigate the glut of information out there regarding STEM for girls. Because STEM is only a portion of what I do in my job, it really wasn’t time well spent. I place great value and get a huge return on the time invested in attending NGCP events."
