The Problem


The STEM industry has a gender diversity problem. This issue begins as early as middle school for girls and stems from a

1) lack of vision,

2) lack of confidence,

3) lack of role models, and

4) lack of support.

We formed GRIT_PHL to solve this problem.

Our mission

Our mission is to empower upper-elementary and middle school girls to boldly pursue the study of STEM subjects and create a vision of who they can be in these industries through teaching, storytelling, mentoring, and character development.
