Role Models Matter™
Role models play a critical role in shaping a girl’s STEM identity, interest and aspirations. Although many STEM professionals are well intentioned to share their journey and experience, many don’t quite know how to go about engaging girls in conversation or telling their personal story. To support role models and increase their effectiveness, Techbridge Girls developed the Role Models Matter (™) training program. The training helps role models develop skills to engage girls from marginalized communities through videos, reflection questions and more.
