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 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.
