1. GET INFORMED 

2. BE CURIOUS: 

  • Observe your daily interactions through a gender lens.
  • Listen to your own language when you’re engaging with others.
  • Look at the gender breakout in positions of leadership (corporate boards, executive team, administration, etc.)

3. ENCOURAGE THE WOMEN & GIRLS IN YOUR LIFE: 

  • Read through “15 Things You Can Do” for ideas on how to encourage and nurture young women.
  • Become a Vermont Fab Fem by creating an online profile highlighting your career in science, technology, engineering, and/or math.

4. SPREAD THE WORD: 

  • Share our website and reports with colleagues and friends.
  • If you are a member of the Chamber or Rotary, please offer us as a speaker.
  • Organize a brown bag lunch at your workplace to discuss these issues (we would be happy to facilitate, if possible).
  • Host a forum to further the discussion.
  • Share our promo video via email and social media.
