Memo to the Educate to Innovate Campaign
A MEMO to the Educate to Innovate Campaign (Obama, 2009), that recommends top five strategies to increase the number of girls and women in science and engineering education. Made by a group of 20 lead organizations with brainstorming response from 350 experts in the national community of practice.
The “July 19th Collaboration” offers a list of 39 focused strategies, each of which can be tied to root causes based on research, and pilot programs with results. Together they comprise a systemic effort to change and correct for historical biases and exclusion.
