Black Girls Do STEM is diversifying innovation, empowering Black girls to achieve equitable STEM representation. By creating a culturally unique learning space we give room for cognitive and mental resilience. BGDSTEM fosters the development of a STEM mindset and belief in STEM capabilities while placing positive role models who look like them right in their path. Through our core values of scholarship, training, empowerment (equity), and mentorship, we trigger curiosity in the mind of Black girls, building confidence, skills, and the future STEM workforce.
What Our Participants Are Saying
BGDSTEM has really boosted my confidence and let me know I could really do anything. Being Black in the STEM field I know would be challenging, but BGDSTEM really let me know that I can’t be held back. Thank you so much for this opportunity.
