WTF supports the future of our city, our nation and our world

We have reached a crisis point. Girls are not pursuing STEM studies, and those in STEM careers are not staying long. While the issues are complex; there are limited role models for our young girls; there is limited mentoring and sponsoring for STEM women…

WTF will make a sustainable impact.
