Event description
STEM Gems is a movement focused on increasing the number of girls choosing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

About this Event

STEM Gems executes on its mission through diverse offerings, including the STEM Gems Club, the #GiveGirlsRoleModels Campaign Pop-up, the STEM Gems Summer Camp, and the STEM Gems Summit: Women Empowering Girls.

Occurring virtually during Women’s History Month in March, the Summit brings together tween and teen girls and their supporters (parents, care givers, educators, relatives, mentors) and exposes them to a wide range of STEM careers underrepresented by women. Attendees have the opportunity to meet leading STEM women, learn about their unique career journeys, and understand what it takes to pursue similar careers.

The STEM Gems Summit: Women Empowering Girls 2021 will be on Saturday, March 20 from 11:00AM-2:45 PM EST / 8:00AM-11:45AM PST. The format and speakers are as follows:
