I'm not one hundred percent sure I understand your question, but I have a

thought anyway. Obviously not all girls or boys have to go in to a field

that is specifically math, science or technology. Still, many if not ALL

careers are impacted by our foundations in these fields. For example, I am

in the field of Development, Family Studies and ECE. When I introduce this

topic to girls (as I have done at Math and Science Career days - amazingly

enough some programs include the Social Sciences as a Science - I wish more

did!), I suggest how we use statistics to study the field we are interested

in and that all professionals in our area need to understand basic

statistics so they can read and critique information on their own. Again,

I'm not sure this is what you are asking or if you are asking how to build

self-esteem in college-aged women who have no confidence left in math?
