The White House today announced that Arizona State University will lead the National STEM Collaborative, a consortium of 19 institutions of higher education and postsecondary and non-profit partners committed to supporting girls and women of color in STEM fields. The announcement by the White House Council for Women and Girls reflects the national recognition earned by ASU’s Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology (CGEST) and the Center’s Executive Director, Dr. Kimberly A. Scott, in encouraging greater access to STEM for women and girls of color. Among other achievements, Dr. Scott founded the nationally lauded CompuGirls program.
