During this session, educators will learn some of the hidden signals today’s society sends girls in science, math, and technology in addition to discovering the ways society unintentionally discourages girls from careers in STEM.

Participants will learn how to develop action plans for a campus to increase recruitment, retention, and achievement for girls in STEM fields and walk away with the first steps toward making a change in their own school.
