Getting girls involved in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts/Design, and Math) is critical for the success of companies throughout the United States and the pursuit of global leadership. Creating programs that engage girls both in the classroom and in the field, providing mentoring opportunities, and retaining women in the STEAM workforce – are all foundational components and a priority to stay ahead of the curve.

Enjoy light hors d'oeuvres and drinks, hear how to promote these STEAM initiative activities for girls in underserved areas,and network with peers to learn more information about this critical program.
For 10 years, the ACS Foundation has helped raise awareness and provided scholarships and technology for TGI Tech, helping increase girls’ interest, confidence, and competence in STEAM, and overcoming barriers and stereotypes in these areas. The program provides girls with innovative learning opportunities while helping them to develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
