Techbridge Girls (TBG) is an award-winning national nonprofit organization bringing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education to all girls* across the US. For over 20 years, TBG has reengineered the way STEM education is taught, centering our girls’ brilliance and potential, with an emphasis on increasing STEM access, belonging, and persistence for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) youth from marginalized communities. We believe that without BIPOC girls’ experiences, values, interests, voices, and brilliance, we will never experience the full possibilities of what STEM can do for our world, and we have set a goal to reach one million girls by 2030. TBG takes a holistic approach towards engaging girls emotionally and intellectually, by equipping educators with gender and culturally responsive practices, engaging families to support their youths’ persistence, and connecting role models to inspire and encourage, ensuring that girls leave the TBG program equipped to bring their brilliance and unique experiences to thrive in the STEM revolution. This approach continues to set TBG apart as a STEM equity leader. With an annual organizational budget of approximately $4 million and roughly 21 employees, Techbridge Girls is poised for bold growth to increase its impact.
