Dear Members of the Equity Listserv,
I am seeking your expertise, collective wisdom, and recommendations.
A colleague and I will be conducting a parent session at an upcoming "Girls
Day" at our local community college. The day is targeted at adolescent
and their parents. Our session will focus on what parents can do to
encourage girls in math, science, and technology. We have plenty of
information for encouraging younger girls; however, we are looking for
information about helping those girls who haven't found success in these
areas, those who would never choose activities in these realms, or those
reluctantly engage in these areas but haven't really been grabbed by the
content. We are looking for advice and recommendations for these parents
recognize the importance of having their daughters continue to take courses
in math and science when their daughters are discouraged at their
achievement in these areas. What can be done when it seems as if it's too
Thank you in advance for your help.
Jan Jetel
