Leveraging Collective Impact to Support STEM Programs and Resources  -  Thursday, September 29 @ 1pm MT

Too often programs that serve girls in STEM are limited in service and impact due to size, location, funding, expertise, and equipment.  In other cases, projects compete with each other, duplicating services and seeking the same resources. In this webinar, learn how the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) and other organizations leverage collective impact in order to provide the opportunity for programs to increase their ability to maintain interest and participation of girls in STEM through collaboration. Hear from a dynamic panel of speakers on strategies for successful STEM collaborations and how to nurture and scale effective STEM learning opportunities for all young people.
