Gender Equity in STEM

The vision of the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) is to bring together organizations in the US that are committed to informing and encouraging girls to pursue careers in STEM. Within the site, there is a "Connectory" that features a range of STEAM opportunities. The Connectory has resources for families and caregivers of K-12 youth as well as for program providers. NGCP hosts events, which are currently virtual. The site offers a blog on a variety of related topics and information. Other resources include mini-grants, newsletters, webinars, statistics, stories, exemplary practices, a collaboration guide, and relevant links.
