About our broadcast series

From our own Impact studies, we know that one thing is key to inspiring girls to pursue STEM subjects – and that is, to provide a community of role models. Tailored to our older g4g students who are determining what studies to pursue in university, these virtual broadcasts connect female scientists and STEM leaders to the next generation of potential engineers, scientists and curiosity-filled young women.

Particularly, we'll be asking awe-inspiring role models to share that ONE moment, that SPARK, that apple-falling-off-the-tree EPIPHANY where they knew that science and their being were inexplicably intertwined. All these stories will be told LIVE and are designed to encourage you to think about what inspires you, to begin to contemplate your purpose and to create some ideas on how you can get there.

Safety & Privacy

We ensure that private information remains confidential, particularly by utilizing Zoom’s safety functions such as waiting rooms, passwords, authenticated users, in-meeting security controls, control of screen sharing, and control of disabling, blocking, or muting users.

We will be monitoring online safety during the broadcast by having a Safety Officer as part of our dedicated behind-the-scenes team which will monitor unruly chat or be ready to remove anyone that doesn’t belong (using the security controls built into Zoom).
