Women in Technology is an important project within the MIE Community program, as the underrepresentation of girls and women in STEM is a broad, complex and long-standing issue.

Research indicates that girls and women face many barriers to participating in STEM education and careers—from stereotypes and bias to inequitable workplace culture.

The Women in Technologies project will include a variety of STEM gender equity projects which will be piloted and evaluated using the National Evaluation Guide for STEM Gender Equity Programs.

Vital to the project is finding programs which effectively dismantle barriers, attract and keep girls and women in STEM.
