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.
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.
