This interactive discussion is hosted by the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP) and is facilitated by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES). The goal of this conversation is to help inform the work being done by AISES and others in their efforts to reach girls that are hard to reach with STEM learning opportunities. This hour has been designed to crowd-source and share broadly the lessons lesarned from girl-serving STEM programs reaching girls with additional barriers to STEM education. Our time together will be divided into three phases of conversation: challenges, stategies, and steps for action. Whether you are an organization or individual steeped in this knowledge or looking to learn more, we welcome you to participate in this dynamic conversation on a very important topic for our field.  

The American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) is a national, nonprofit organization focused on substantially increasing the representation of American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, First Nations and other indigenous peoples of North America in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies and careers.

Founded in 1977, with a rapidly expanding membership of more than 4,000 individual members, the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) sustains 189 chartered college and university chapters, 15 professional  chapters, and 158 affiliated K-12 schools supporting American Indian students in the critically needed disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). AISES has awarded over $11 million in academic scholarships to American Indian STEM students. Through scholarships and internships, workforce development and career resources, national and regional conferences, science fairs, leadership development and other STEM focused programming, AISES is the leader in STEM opportunity for American Indians.
