Breaking Barriers for Women in STEM

Our Goal

The goal of Breaking Barriers for Women in STEM is to increase the participation of women in STEM programs and careers. We are working with students, educational institutions, employers, governments, STEM professionals, parents and others to:

  • Collect and analyze grassroots perspectives
  • Create and promote workplace and government policy recommendations
  • Develop and pilot strategies to address systemic barriers including using technology-based tools designed to support women and girls in STEM


We want your insights on the barriers that contribute to the underrepresentation of women in STEM and what can be done to encourage and retain more Women. We welcome insights from both women and men.
