Five-Minute Film Festival: 8 Videos to Encourage Girls in STEM - Edutopia

Five-Minute Film Festival: 8 Videos to Encourage Girls in STEM - Edutopia | Diversity | Scoop.it
"There are some wonderful discussions in the Edutopia community right now about girls and STEM education -- have a peek at Women (and Girls) in STEM or Are We Getting Too Aggressive Promoting STEM to Girls? The fact is, women still make up less than a quarter of the STEM workforce in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. The good news is that there are some amazing people, organizations, and companies working to remedy this. I've collected some videos to ignite your imagination about what girls can do in science, technology, engineering, and math -- when given opportunities and encouragement."

3 Next Steps for Developing Girls' Leadership - Edutopia

3 Next Steps for Developing Girls' Leadership - Edutopia | Diversity | Scoop.it
"During the month of March, in many educational settings, women's history is addressed. Images of famous female leaders are pulled out to decorate walls; special assemblies are held; picture books are read; girl power is acknowledged and celebrated. This is all good, but there are some next steps that educators (both men and women) need to take if we're going to truly empower girls and set them up for leadership roles. We need to offer expanded definitions of leadership, take on the "Lean In" vs. "Recline" debate, and walk the talk."
