Around the world, girls face unique barriers to education. In our community, a combination of social factors and access to STEM experiences limits the number of girls seeking careers in these fields. In fact, 57% of girls say they do not normally consider a career in STEM.
Brave highlights some of the barriers girls face globally, telling the story of Nasro, a 17-year-old girl whose courageous drive to continue her education is inspired by the magical dreams of her mother and the sisterhood of her friends. Through creating mentors and places to empower girls in their education and daily life, we can break these barriers. If you are interested in purchasing individual tickets
