Women and Girls in STEM Month

November 2019

As an institution dedicated to engaging audiences traditionally underrepresented in STEM, the Museum of Science has a deep commitment to empower women and girls to see themselves as active participants in all areas of science and technology. We believe this responsibility extends beyond those girls and women who have an affinity for STEM fields to those that have not yet discovered their own STEM interests. Demystifying STEM, for the Museum of Science, is about demonstrating to all women and girls – regardless of background, race, or role in life – that they can be STEM learners.

Our Women in Science and Engineering Committee – a group of women affiliated with the Museum of Science as trustees, Museum advisors, and donors – strives to create programming that provides a platform for interested women to hear about the research and life experiences of distinguished women within the science field, and learn from one another in the process.

As we look forward to another year of empowering female STEM learners and STEM leaders, preparations are underway for a month of inspired programming. We are actively seeking women in STEM fields to share their expertise on panels or to serve as mentors for the next generation of female scientists, tech innovators, engineers, and mathematicians.

For more information and volunteer opportunities, please reach out to Jessica Kriley, Relationship Development Director, at jkriley@mos.org.
