What attracts female-identifying students to STEM fields, particularly those that use digital technologies, and what distances them from these fields? Join NGCP in collaboration with Gender Scan as we explore what data tells us about the importance of educators, parents and peers in order to engage, retain, and fulfill women and girls in technology fields, and STEM in general.
The Girls in STEM: A (Data-based) Tale of Confidence & Satisfaction webinar was hosted by NGCP and Gender Scan on Februrary 21, 2023. In this webinar recording, speakers break down data collected from approximately 3,000 teenage participants who took the Gender Scan 2021 survey. Speakers from the Gender Scan project will explain the need to build adolescent girls’ confidence in STEM, show them the global importance of studying STEM, and describe the role of educators, parents, and peers.
