Why it Matters
Mentoring girls to become strong leaders and also excited about STEM fields will help create a new paradigm for our global ecomomy.
By 2030, the country is expected to face a net shortage of 962,000 tech workers.
This presents a giant opportunity for girls worldwide!
Leading tech giants are investing in initiatives designed to increase the number of women pursuing a STEM career. Organizations and all of us at GLAM understand the VALUE that women bring to the table.
Your support helps give girls the tools they need to feel empowered, dream big, and succeed.
Empowered girls become empowered women.
We're Aiming for Impact
Leadership: Studies have shown that companies with more women in senior leadership roles consistently have better financial performance than those with fewer women in leadership.
STEM: Advocates for closing the STEM gender gap say that helping girls build confidence in math, science and computer skills increases the chance they will become role models.*(source)
Modeling: Self-Efficacy means believing in yourself to take action and succeed. Women business leaders and mentors are perfect role models for learning this skill, and positive motivators for girls.
