Excellence in innovation and discovery depends upon diverse perspectives and equitable opportunities and approaches. In this theme, a core commitment of the Chair is fostering paths to access STEM experiences, education and careers.

COLLABORATION

This theme recognizes the need for cultivated, co-ordinated and engaged partners for meaningful positive impact for girls, women and underrepresented persons.
