How can educators and parents in the United States encourage girls to excel in their math, science and technology classes and go on to pursue STEM-related careers? According to experts who organized the Furthering Girls’ Math Identity event, the answer lies in the concept of “math identity.” The event, part of a National Science Foundation-funded project, Educational Equity, gathered educators, researchers and policymakers from across the country. It was held on June 9, 2015, in Washington, DC, and was hosted by FHI 360 in partnership with IMPAQ International and the New York Academy of Sciences.
