Get Involved - Become a Role Model

“We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change.”  Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook

The EgGS Initiative needs your help providing high school age girls with opportunities to hear from successful, energetic professional women who are effectively navigating STEM careers.  Share your insights and experiences to help students more confidently pursue a profession in science, technology, engineering, or math. You can be key to each girl acquiring a wide perspective of what’s possible and armed with ideas of how to prepare to succeed in a STEM career.
 

For some girls, you will be the first STEM professional woman they will have met. For many, you will provide them with their first ideas about what it takes to succeed in a career. For all, you will have the opportunity to positively influence how they see themselves as a STEM professional!

Participating in this forum where bright, energetic young women are planning to pursue STEM careers gives me the deeply rewarding opportunity to encourage and support them on the road to their STEM goals. With every woman who enters a STEM career, the field becomes more inviting and available to the next woman.
