The STEM Ambassadors are a group of dedicated student leaders that help the Douglass Project implement workshops and programs that promote the success of women in STEM fields. These programs include the the Scientific Breakfast Clubs, LinkedIn Workshop, and networking events with industry professionals.
When students are chosen for the STEM Ambassador program they receive special leadership training in areas such as leadership theory, team building, techniques for assessing one’s strengths and weaknesses, problem solving, decision making, and goal-setting.
The STEM Ambassadors are valuable to the Douglass Project because Rutgers is home to over 100 different science, technology, engineering and math departments which are located on several different campuses. These peer leaders assist other women who are interested in STEM to find faculty members, student mentors and other resources that support success at Rutgers.
