Girls Empowered & Mentored for Success
** ( GEMS ) **
Our goal is to strengthen Hawaii’s capacity to increase the number of women pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). We aim to build a fully developed network of constituents and resources that support those that create programs for and work with girls in STEM.
The GEMS Honolulu STEM Collaborative Project goal is to bring together organizations and programs that are committed to informing and motivating girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to build a strong, diverse workforce in Hawaii.
We have noticed that oftentimes programs that serve girls in STEM are limited in service and impact due to size, location, funding, expertise, and equipment. On the opposite end of the spectrum, projects can find themselves competing with each other, duplicating services and seeking the same resources. GEMS Honolulu STEM Collaborative Project provides the opportunity for programs to increase their ability to maintain interest and participation of girls in STEM within Hawaii through collaboration.
Collaboration, as an interactive process, enables professionals across projects and communities to generate and carry out creative solutions and strategies that maximize benefits beyond what one project or community could accomplish. GEMS Honolulu is structured to bring organizations together to leverage resources, share information and exemplary practices, and to plan strategically to expand STEM-related opportunities for Hawaii girls.
