AAUW + StemEd for girls

Though we are nonpartisan, we are not values-neutral: We fight to remove the barriers and biases that stand in the way of gender equity. We train women to negotiate for pay and benefits and to pursue leadership roles. And we advocate for federal, state and local laws and policies to ensure equity and end discrimination.

STEMEd for Girls is a FREE exciting online program created for high school girls —with a particular focus on girls of color—and the people who support them. Whether you are just starting to explore an interest in science, technology, engineering, or math, or you have already decided to major in STEM in college, this program will help you prepare for the journey from 9th grade to 12th grade.
