Oregon Girls Collaborative

The Oregon Girls Collaborative (OGC) is a statewide network of support for girl-serving STEM organizations, working to strengthen capacity, increase continuation of girl-serving STEM programs, and create more champions for gender-equity in STEM education and careers. As part of the National Girls Collaborative, we have access to thousands of programs and resources that are focused on providing high quality STEM experiences for girls.

We see the Oregon Girls Collaborative as part of the STEM movement that will change the face of STEM in Oregon, exposing more underrepresented youth to quality STEM experiences while keeping older girls engaged in non-traditional STEM fields through high school and beyond. The collaborative is working to increase equity in STEM and strengthen the pipeline of girls from elementary school through women in the workforce.

We share resources from local and national partners, provide training, increase awareness by presenting information to various audiences through conferences and special events, and work to connect partners in sustainable collaborations through the thousands of state and national partners and resources focused on providing high quality STEM experiences for girls.

Oregon Girls Collaborative overall goals are to strengthen capacity, increase continuation of girl-serving STEM programs, and create more champions for gender-equity in STEM education and careers.
