The FabFems Project

Responding to national data concerning the lack of women in science and engineering, the National Girls Collaborative Project is leveraging their collaborative network, industry partners, professional organizations, and institutions of higher education to implement the FabFems Project. The FabFems directory is a national database of women in STEM professions who are inspiring role models for young women.  The FabFems directory is accessible to young women, girl-serving STEM programs, and other organizations that are working to increase career awareness and interest in STEM.
