Where can I find organizations that support women in STEM-related careers?

As a woman hoping to get a STEM-related career after college, I recognize the fact that there are few of us. Are there any organizations or places where I may be able to find like-minded women?I believe it is important for women to support one another, especially in a male-dominated field of specialization. engineering mechanical-engineering women-in-stem organization women-in-tech

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is a great resource for all things STEM! If you are under 18, you can join SWENext, which will provide STEM activities and resources. If you're in college, you can join the Society as a full member. Networking, professional development, job searches, a support network.. SWE has it all!


This sounds perfect for me. Thank you so much! Bronwyn G.

Lots of very active groups to engage in this important topic. I would check within your own university as they generally run local programs intros area. Doing a Google Search will lead you to many avenues of information and engagement. Check out the Federal Government/Obama Administration website https://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/ostp/women

Reach out to local busisiness which are women owned in your STEM field to see what they offer.  My daughter got an architecture internship with a design build company.  They offered to their women interns connections with local women-run or women-focused companies who shared their knowledge of the construction/architecture industry though happy hours and local meetings.
