NGCP National Webinar: From Research to Practice: An Up-to-Date Look at Gender Equity in STEM
March 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) as we celebrate Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day (March 8) with an important webinar highlighting gender equity in STEM.
For nearly 20 years, NGCP has worked to advance the agenda in gender equity by encouraging girls to pursue careers in STEM. In this research-to-practice webinar, we will learn about up-to-date research regarding gender equity in STEM and how it impacts girls and women learning and working in STEM. We will also engage in conversation around strategies and resources for continued progress in supporting girls and women in STEM.
Participants will hear from Brenda Britsch, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist with the NGCP; Gabriela A. González, Deputy Director and Operations Manager of the Intel Foundation; Dr. Zahra Hazari, Professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning and the STEM Transformation Institute at Florida International University; Dr. LaShawnda Lindsay, Research Scientist and Black Girls Create Project Director; and Karen Peterson, CEO and Founder of the National Girls Collaborative Project.
