Women in STEM Initiative @ The STEM Center

Women in STEM The Women in STEM Initiative at American River College is a program designed to empower and support women in the STEM fields. Housed within the STEM Center, the initiative provides an opportunity to come together, share experiences, and discuss the challenges and opportunities for women in STEM in a safe and welcoming environment.

Women in STEM seeks to support women at all stages throughout their academic and professional careers. We work to inspire young women who may be considering the field. We provide hands-on support through tutorial services and workshops related to resumes and personal statements. We help students identify mentors both in faculty and in the industry, and provide support as students transition from the community college through transfer and into industry.

With our student focus, we are also proud to support the Women in STEM student club. Composed of a diverse student population, the club works to provide broad support beyond that of our center and campus, providing opportunities throughout our community and beyond.

For more information or to get involved in the Women in STEM Initiative, come by the STEM Center and chat with our students and coordinators.
