Building sustainable partnerships between STEM professionals, community organizations, schools and higher education

The Southern New England Girls Collaborative Project is one of 28 regional chapters (covering 38 states) of the National Girls Collaborative Project, a National Science Foundation funded initiative that has been in existence for 10 years. The goals of the project are to encourage collaboration and resource-sharing between private and public sector organizations, and to strengthen the capacity of existing and evolving projects that increase girls’ participation in STEM programs. During this session, we will provide participants with the opportunity to network, and share success and challenges of collaborative efforts, effective program models and best practices in gender-specific programming. SNEGCP will also provide an overview of its mini-grant process to encourage new collaborations.
