Currently, only 13 percent of U.S. high school girls are planning on pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Likewise, while in college, many young women leave STEM degree paths despite their good academic standing. Women in these disciplines often experience uncomfortable classroom experiences and unfriendly climates. The Million Women Mentors Initiative wants to change those statistics by encouraging and supporting the engagement of 1 million mentors (male and female). Mentors will help increase girls’ and young women’s interest in STEM programs and help them gain the self-confidence to succeed in STEM careers by partnering with 35 national organizations reaching over 18 million girls.
