STEM Like a Girl

STEM like GIRL Book Cover
STEM like GIRL Book Cover

STEM Like a Girl empowers girls, 8-12, with the knowledge and confidence to become future problem solvers and leaders in the scientific world and beyond. This fully illustrated and photographic book profiles 35 inspiring girls and offers 15 hands-on, STEM-based experiments that they can do at home.

While leading a hands-on engineering project in her son’s elementary school, researcher and biotech engineer Sarah Foster noticed fewer girls raising their hands or jumping into the activities than the boys. Surprised to see a gender gap at play at such a young age, she decided to do something about it. She founded STEM Like a Girl in 2017 with the goal of introducing young girls to the fun and rewarding fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

In her first book, Sarah captures 35 girls expressing their love of all things STEM, Each girl speaks to her inspirations and role models, her favorite types of experiments, and why failure is almost always a good thing. Along with these profiles are 15 experiments girls can do at home on their own or with adults including extracting DNA from a strawberry, employing Newton’s Third Law of Motion to build and fire an air cannon, and enacting acid-base chemistry to create homemade fizzy bath bombs.

The Dynamics

The Dynamics Logo

RAISING LEADERS WITH STEM EDUCATION.


The Dynamics is an international non-profit organization bridging the income and gender gap in STEM.

Today, around 30% of the world’s researchers are women, less than a third of female students choose to study in STEM fields. Worse, low-income students are nowhere to be found in STEM.

This Gender and income disparity is alarming, despite STEM careers often referred as the future of a sustainable Earth. Unfortunately, more young people are being idle according to statistics from OECD, ILO and the World Bank. About 200 million people – of whom 75 million are under 25 years old – are unemployed. At least 600 million jobs are needed over the next 15 years to keep current employment rates. If left unattended, idle and jobless young people will represent a lost generation of valuable human resources. That’s why we are here to make a CHANGE.

A TECH STARTUP COMPETITION FOR WOMXN.


Previously in March, we organized PitchTeen when we realized so many students don’t have the access to the resources even if they have the “perfect” business idea. PitchTeen was India’s first tech startup competition for HS students and received more than 250 registrations from 9 countries.

This time, we are back and ready to break the gender stereotypes in business and tech industries. We aim to not only create a safe space for womxn but also increase the visibility and celebrate them in business and tech. We’ll have a lot of fun workshops, events and networking sessions so what are you waiting for? Hop in!

Girls Who Consult

25 BY 25 AND ONE FOR ONE…


Girls Who Consult is an applications based community on a mission to empower the next-generation of mission-driven females into the management consulting industry

Based on 2019 statistics of College Confidential, there are currently only 35 U.S. based target schools listed on the radar for multiple top-tier consulting firms, limiting hundreds of thousands of students from breaking into a career that holds potential to many other future opportunities. At Girls Who Consult, we strive for each and every participant to defy the odds of their academic backgrounds, by adhering to a “one for one” ratio of target to non-target schools reached and to create a diverse community of aspiring female consultants. Our vision is to train and send 2500+ participants into the consulting career by 2025 and to democratize access to professional development for underrepresented populations.

GOLD HOUSE FORGES THE INCLUSIVE UNITY, REPRESENTATION, AND SUCCESS OF ASIANS AND PACIFIC ISLANDERS.


Gold House is the premier nonprofit collective of Asian founders, creative voices, and leaders dedicated to unifying the world’s largest populace–Asians–to enable more authentic multicultural representation and societal equity.

The collective’s members include C-Suite/Partner/President-level executives, A-List creatives, Olympic-level athletes, and successfully-exited founders. Its ventures include a slate of efforts to forge deeper bonds including networking Salons that unlock new professional opportunities; investment vehicles that enable authentic representation like #GoldOpen and content financing; promotional systems that systematically support Asian founders like Gold Rush; a network of caregivers to elongate longevity; and celebratory efforts like the A100 List that honors historic Asian achievements.

In contrast to every major successful diaspora, Asians lack a cohesive culture of mutual support. Our fifty ethnicities, hundreds of dialects, and distributed density across the globe have only extended this fracture. And yet, we’ve witnessed the positive cultural impact when communities rally to support their own: from the invention of new creative institutions like Hip Hop and R&B or leading an entire industry in commerce. To accelerate our people’s professional and cultural legacy, we’ve built an exclusive collective of the most influential pan-Asian founders, creative voices, and leaders dedicated to erecting infrastructural opportunities for ourselves, future generations, and society, at large. We achieve our mission through three ventures: Convening the brightest minds to identify forward-looking solutions to today’s challenges; Creating opportunities for ourselves and society, at large; and Championing excellence in the community.

Girl Decoded

Girl Decoded Book Cover
Girl Decoded Book Cover

In a captivating memoir, an Egyptian American visionary and scientist provides an intimate view of her personal transformation as she follows her calling—to humanize our technology and how we connect with one another.

Rana el Kaliouby is a rarity in both the tech world and her native Middle East: a Muslim woman in charge in a field that is still overwhelmingly white and male. Growing up in Egypt and Kuwait, el Kaliouby was raised by a strict father who valued tradition—yet also had high expectations for his daughters—and a mother who was one of the first female computer programmers in the Middle East. Even before el Kaliouby broke ground as a scientist, she broke the rules of what it meant to be an obedient daughter and, later, an obedient wife to pursue her own daring dream.

After earning her PhD at Cambridge, el Kaliouby, now the divorced mother of two, moved to America to pursue her mission to humanize technology before it dehumanizes us. The majority of our communication is conveyed through nonverbal cues: facial expressions, tone of voice, body language. But that communication is lost when we interact with others through our smartphones and devices. The result is an emotion-blind digital universe that impairs the very intelligence and capabilities—including empathy—that distinguish human beings from our machines.

To combat our fundamental loss of emotional intelligence online, she cofounded Affectiva, the pioneer in the new field of Emotion AI, allowing our technology to understand humans the way we understand one another. Girl Decoded chronicles el Kaliouby’s journey from being a “nice Egyptian girl” to becoming a woman, carving her own path as she revolutionizes technology. But decoding herself—learning to express and act on her own emotions—would prove to be the biggest challenge of all.

The Wake Up

The Wake Up Book Cover

Waking Up to Our Capacity to Transform Ourselves and the World

As we become more aware of various social injustices in the world, many of us want to be part of the movement toward positive change. But sometimes our best intentions cause unintended harm, and we fumble. We might feel afraid to say the wrong thing and feel guilt for not doing or knowing enough. Sometimes we might engage in performative allyship rather than thoughtful solidarity, leaving those already marginalized further burdened and exhausted. The feelings of fear, insecurity, inadequacy are all too common among a wide spectrum of changemakers, and they put many at a crossroads between feeling stuck and giving up, or staying grounded to keep going. So how can we go beyond performative allyship to creating real change in ourselves and in the world, together?

In The Wake Up, Michelle MiJung Kim shares foundational principles often missing in today’s mainstream conversations around “diversity and inclusion,” inviting readers to deep dive into the challenging and nuanced work of pursuing equity and justice, while exploring various complexities, contradictions, and conflicts inherent in our imperfect world. With a mix of in-the-trenches narrative and accessible unpacking of hot button issues—from inclusive language to representation to “cancel culture”—Michelle offers sustainable frameworks that guide us how to think, approach, and be in the journey as thoughtfully and powerfully as possible.

The Wake Up is divided into four key parts:

  • Grounding: begin by moving beyond good intentions to interrogating our deeper “why” for committing to social justice and uncovering our “hidden stories.”
  • Orienting: establish a shared understanding around our historical and current context and issues we are trying to solve, starting with dismantling white supremacy.
  • Showing Up: learn critical principles to approach any situation with clarity and build our capacity to work through complexity, nuance, conflict, and imperfections.
  • Moving Together: remember the core of this work is about human lives, and commit to prioritizing humanity, healing, and community.

The Wake Up is an urgent call for us to move together while seeing each other’s full and expansive humanity that is at the core of our movement toward justice, healing, and freedom.
