How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Since 1980, over 20,000 girls and their teachers have attended our free or low cost technical career workshops, encouraging them to consider such careers, and we now have members who were first inspired to go into their chosen technical careers by attending one of our workshops. In 2010, approximately 1000 students will attend and receive a copy of our careers CDs. In 2009 an additional 600 copies of our careers CD went out to all New Mexico High School guidance counselors, as part of a packet on non-traditional careers from the Center for Education and Study of Diverse Populations, as another 1000 were used at various conferences including two sponsored by Santa Fe Community College as part of the NM STEM statewide initiative. In 2007, in partnership with the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women, we instituted an award to recognize New Mexico women for their mentoring and technical achievements. Three outstanding women have now been honored with our award, highlighting them as role models.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Our major membership activity is an annual meeting and technical symposium each fall where members and students present papers and network. In 2007, in cooperation with the New Mexico Governor's Commission on the Status of Women, we gave out at the annual meeting our first annual IMPACT! Award recognizing New Mexico women for efforts which support our mission and purpose. We also host local chapter activities such as talks and meetings. Our major outreach activity is holding annual Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) technical career workshops for young women, licensed from the National EYH Network. Since 1980 over 18,000 students and their teachers have attended the free or low-cost NMNWSE EYH conferences. In 2008 we will hold 4 conferences and anticipate about 1000 students and their teachers from throughout New Mexico will attend. We publish and provide to all EYH attendees a copy of "Careers: Exploring the Possibilities", which is also available for free online at http://nmnwse.org/careers/. We also sponsor student awards at science fairs and similar technical competitions. See also our webpages, http://nmnwse.org/ which have our Newsletters as well as our Board and Annual Meeting Minutes.
