Event Details

Please join us on Thursday April 3rd for the 2014 kickoff event for the Alliance of Girls in STEM.

Thanks to the XO Group for graciously sponsoring our event!

The Alliance for Girls in STEM has a unique mission:

To produce picture books with tech themes for girls from 4-8 years old that show girls as the main characters in their own stories.

If you search through Amazon or your local bookstore carefully you will see something peculiar: if the subject is STEM-related, almost all of the main characters in the stories are boys. It is so overwhelming that it seems almost normal, even though girls and boys show roughly equal interest levels in science and math at those young ages.

Can we reduce future gender disparity in tech by changing the images that young girls see today? That is what we aim to find out, one book at a time!

We'll provide an update on the exciting things we have planned in 2014, and show you how you can get involved. We've even got door prizes and refreshments!

Finally, you'll also have plenty of time to mix and mingle with others who also believe in this important cause.

NB: Thanks again to XO Group for hosting this event. We couldn't have done it without you!
