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).

Four active projects include CompuGirls, Co-Robotics, STEM for All and African American Families' Uses of Technology for Learning Outside of School. In 2014, Professor Kimberley Scott, excecutive 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.
