My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Math Science Network, Oakland, CA, USA
I've been a Board Member since 2006 and am very proud of my association with this organization. EYH/N (Expanding Your Horizons Network) is the leading organization for motivating girls to pursue higher math and science courses and expand their career choices through hands-on workshops and meeting women STEM role models at Conferences held at colleges and universities around the US and globally. More than 800,000 girls have attended these Conferences and workshops since the Network was founded approx. 30 years ago. Clearly, the organization has made a difference in the lives and career choices of many of our alumna, as we have collected data that has told us how the EYH/N has had a positive influence on them and led many women to careers in science, mathematics, and technology. Also EYH/N won the National Science Board's 2010 Public Service Award, further demonstrating the effect and value of the organization and its mission.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing it grow in number of Conferences and number of girls attending Conferences, in locations including Internationally, and in the survey and anecdotal data showing the positive effects on participants.
