Girls Action Network Participates at Journei’s S.T.E.M.-tastic One Hundred

Girls Action Network (GAN) had the opportunity to participate at Journei’s S.T.E.M.-tastic One Hundred compelling workshop on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at Rowan University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, New Jersey at which Stephanie Humphrey, President, Girls Action Network, Inc., brought her passion for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to her remarks as the keynote speaker. GAN is a grassroots organization focused on social transformation to educate and empower girls ages 11 and up, with special emphasis on those from underserved communities. At the core of GAN’s mission, the realization is that girls commonly are directed towards traditional careers, away from, for example, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Reaching beyond single mentoring, GAN Founder, Elisa Basnight comments that “GAN strives to create a myriad of innovative programs and experiences, some in partnership with other not-for-profits and organizations, designed to show girls their expansive career and educational choices at a time when, research consistently shows that ‘education for girls is one of the most effective if not the most effective investment a nation can make to improve the health and prosperity of present and future generations.’
