The North Carolina Girls STEM Collaborative focuses on connecting programs across North Carolina that serve girls to resources, professional development, and collaborative and grant opportunities to further the development, reach, and awareness of each program to its full potential, through the National Girls Collaborative Program Directory, the direct connections of statewide leadership team and champions board members, and by holding mini-grant opportunities. NCGSTEM provides substantial awareness throughout the state of the documented disparities in the number of females and males participating in STEM careers through statewide and national collaborative newsletters, networking and speaking opportunities with stakeholders, and dissemination of information from NGCP partners to the member programs in the program directory.
