“Women Empowerment in STEM” (WE-STEM) is an interdisciplinary, inter-collegiate initiative that aims to support female students in STEM by equipping them with the tools to deal successfully with challenges, intimidation, and stereotype threat, and to make them feel like they truly belong in their areas of interest, via professional, scholarly, and social engagement.  WE-STEM will:

  • Create a mentorship program in which female undergraduate and graduate students will offer advice and support to new female STEM majors.
  • Bring together female STEM students in monthly activities that can serve as consciousness-raising sessions and community-building programs
  • Support undergraduate research and conference registration.
  • Arrange for prominent local female speakers in STEM fields for presentations.
  • Conduct workshops on life-long learning skills to support success in students’ graduate and professional endeavors.
