Numerous programs and initiatives to create gender equity in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) have been implemented only to lose effectiveness or fade away. Had these programs had the benefit of collaboration with other girl-serving projects, organizations and institutions, and tools to assess and evaluate the impact of their efforts, their capacity for continuation and/or broader impact could have been substantially increased.

How do we Collaborate? NGCP Updates NGCP Webcast

Collaboration, as an interactive process, enables professionals across projects and communities to generate and carry out creative solutions and strategies that maximize benefit beyond that which one project or community could accomplish. This model includes a number of strategic activities that provide value and incentives to encourage organizations and individuals to work together and to use the leverage of a network or collaboration of individual girl-serving STEM programs to create the tipping point for gender equity in STEM.

NGCP January Webcast
Why Don't They Hear What I Say?

Wednesday, January 9, 2008
11:00-12:00 PST

Have you ever felt as though you're shouting and no one hears; that your good work on gender and science is ignored by policy makers, teachers, and parents who all too often fall back on myths and stereotypes about gender?

If your answer is yes, then join Pat Campbell and the FairerScience team to learn more about why you aren’t being heard and what you can do to help people separate myth from reality. We will cover issues of language, of media reporting and just what the facts actually are. In addition, we will explore the women in science blogging community and ways blogs can be used to introduce girls to the real lives of real scientists. .
