Science Club for Girls will honor Dr. Jennifer Chayes (Microsoft), Dr. Shirley Malcom (AAAS) and Cubist Pharmaceuticals for their efforts to advance diversity in science, technology and engineering.
SCFG seeks to build girls' confidence while increasing their literacy in science, technology, engineering and mathematics; this is achieved through a unique mentoring model that empowers older girls to mentor younger girls. The Catalyst Awards event offers networking with a diverse group of professionals from STEM industry, academia and research institutions, law firms and financial institutions, and many others. Catalyst is also a high-energy event that showcases our girls and their projects and enables you to participate in some exciting "experiments"! SCFG depends on the financial support of individual, corporate and foundation donors so join us at the Catalyst event to show support for diversity in STEM fields.
