GE Girls is sponsored by General Electric and is a program designed to encourage girls to explore the world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and STEM-based careers. The program began in 2011 with one program at MIT and has since grown to over nine programs, with more to come. In addition to the in-person programs, GE Girls launched the GE Girls Club in 2016 as a way to keep the conversation going about STEM.
Since its inception, GE Girls has reached hundreds of girls who will continue to explore STEM and engage with the program throughout their high school years.
