Close the gender and racial STEM gap; donate to Girls Global Academy today.
Women make up less than 25% of all Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) jobs, and only 10% of those employed in the STEM fields are women of color.
Women make up only 8.1% of the CEOs, executive management, and mid-level managers in fortune 500 companies. Of that 8.1%, only two are black women.
Girls Global Academy is Washington, DC’s premier training ground for high school girls in the areas of global citizenship, entrepreneurship, and STEM. Through our career pathways in STEM and business, girls prepare to be powerful agents of change. At Girls Global Academy, we couple rich academics with a culture of care, sisterhood support, and opportunities for service.
At Girls Global Academy girls LEAD the way.
Your gift to the Because She Matters campaign ensures the academic, social, and emotional support Girls Global Academy girls need to succeed in school and life.
Like all DC charter schools, we receive government funding to provide a quality education to all of our girls. However, to develop equitable pathways to entrepreneurship and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math for girls of color, we rely on the generosity of supporters like you. Your gift to Girls Global Academy fulfills our promise of Sisterhood, Scholarship, Service, and Safety.
