Join the Million Women Mentors movement.

The Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative encourages women in STEM to become mentors for young women in STEM. The Million Women Mentors is a nationwide program that does just that. Kentucky’s Million Women Mentor efforts are being led by women from the Kentucky Commission on Women, the Kentucky Association of Manufacturers, and the KGSC. Kentucky has pledged to have 2,015 mentors added to the movement. If you are a STEM professional, STEM educator, or anyone else who can mentor girls (or boys) in STEM, make your mentoring pledge at https://www.millionwomenmentors.org/ky and take one of these steps below to help us towards the 2,015 Kentucky mentors goal.
