Mission Statement

Self-eSTEM vision is to build a sustainable, diverse and inclusive STEM workforce pipeline by providing support in all stages of the pipeline.

About This Cause

Our Vision
Self-eSTEM’s vision is to create future science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) leaders and eliminate the critical shortage gap of STEM professionals by building a diverse, inclusive and sustainable workforce pipeline, comprised of minority young women and girls.

Our Mission
Self-eSTEM promotes STEM to young minority girls and women, by building their self-esteem and independence through the exposure of interactive and culturally responsive activities. We use an integrated approach to provide support from primary/secondary education to post-secondary education, and post-secondary to early career. By attracting, training, and retaining young girls and women from under resourced communities, we create thriving learning environments where individuals have access to STEM educational and career pathways. Participants will develop the critical and systems thinking skills needed to meet the demands of the future workforce.

We are building and diversifying the next generation of STEM innovators and entrepreneurs to disrupt the world!

Our Philosophy
Our learning approach and curriculum design incorporates Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards (CCSS), but is distinctive from the traditional classroom learning style. We leverage design thinking principles to develop innovative curriculum that de-mystifying STEM concepts by making it applicable to participants’ interest or daily experiences, allowing them to feel safe to learn. Our program service offerings apply a holistic approach, focusing on building STEM literacy skills, self-esteem and resiliency for success in life and within the STEM workforce pipeline.
