Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology
Arizona State University's Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology is a research unit in the School of Social Transformation in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The center strives to create an interdisciplinary, racially-ethnically diverse community of scholars, students, policymakers and practitioners who explore, identify and ultimately develop innovative scholarship about and best practices for under-represented girls in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Among the active projects are CompuGirls, CompuGirlsHawaii, CompuPower, CoRobots, STEM for All and Women of Color in Computing Collaborative.
In 2014, Professor Kimberley Scott, executive director of CompuGirls, received a Champions of Change Award from the White House for her work in social justice with emphasis on social and academic development for girls of color.
