Collaborative for Gender Equity in Emerging Technologies

Collaborative for Gender Equity in Emerging Technologies

The Collaborative for Gender Equity in Emerging Technologies website is a resource developed by the Center for Occupational Research and Development (CORD) as part of a National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education Project. The two-year project takes a multi-faceted approach toward encouraging high-school girls to pursue careers in emerging technologies. The project team is focused on dispelling myths about girls’ abilities in science and technology, providing the tools for local mentoring programs to take root, disseminating information about high-tech careers and the coursework needed to succeed in them, and fostering the development of a classroom culture conducive to gender equity. Specific project activities include the development of an online mentoring program toolkit, a series of workshops for mentoring program coordinators, and a facilitator-led online professional development course "Fostering Gender Equity in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Classroom" for high school faculty.
