The Zweig ElevateHER program wants to encourage school aged girls to pursue their interest in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. We want to send the message that ‘you belong here.’ School districts can download these FREE interactive tools!
According to research, 66% of girls and 68% of boys are interested in science during the 4th grade. However, by freshmen year only 14% of women intend to pursue a STEM degree, as opposed to 32% of men. Girls losing interest in STEM and therefore AEC careers is a leaking pipeline that we need to address in the professional world as well as the academic world. We know it will take a partnership like ours to truly make a difference in this industry and for girls and women in our communities.
