STEM for Her is a non-profit organization that inspires and empowers girls and young women from middle school to college to change the world by excelling in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers. It is staffed 100 percent by volunteers committed to helping more young women across the greater Washington, D.C. region consider and thrive on STEM-related paths.
The Foundation provides funding for programs, speakers, and corporate- and school-sponsored and community programs that foster STEM interest in girls and young women. STEM for Her financial support has helped sponsor field trips, speakers, programs and curriculum development, and contribute program resources for clubs and after school groups in Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. that serve girls. Through the Foundation’s efforts, thousands of girls and women in the metropolitan D.C. area have learned about the exciting opportunities available to them in STEM-related careers.
