Houston-based STEM education nonprofit Black Girls Do Engineer has launched new chapters in New Orleans and Los Angeles.
The organization provides mentoring, personal growth regimens, STEM projects and activities, STEM challenges, and guidance on career paths to girls ages 6-21.
“Our organization was created with the concern that Black-American girls and young women are not choosing STEM related careers, and our passion is to change the narrative and fix this issue,” shared Black Girls Do Engineer.
According to the organization, a recent study found that women make up only 25 percent of the STEM workforce, but less than five percent of the STEM workforce are women of color.
