Letters + Numbers = WORDS THAT COUNT
We’re building an Africa where young girls and women thrive in STEM through shared experiences.
Words That Count is an initiative that documents stories of successful African women in STEM fields to present the various prospects on the STEM spectrum to young girls mapping their careers in STEM. The scarcity of female role models in the STEM field makes it harder to close the gender gap.
“Having role models is so key .
It’s important for girls to see other women in STEM fields because it really lets them picture themselves there in the future. It helps them see that they can truly aspire to that dream.”
