Role Model Training and Resources

It’s amazing to hear a girl say, “I want to be the next Sally Ride. Or the next Jane Goodall or Anita Borg." By connecting with a role model, the aspirations of a young girl become real, concrete and achievable.

The Role Models Matter Online Training Toolkit will help you develop RMM Logoskills to engage girls and underrepresented youth in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) through readings, videos, questions, and more. Role models play a vital role in getting youth excited about careers in STEM.
