It isn't easy to develop effective outreach materials to recruit women to STEM and CTE! To help you we have developed these easy to use templates for a Women in STEM brochure for your program, a recruitment presentation, a flyer that describes your program and has a picture of a female role model, a Women in STEM section of your school's website, and more.
You just have to fill in the blanks in the templates with the information from your school's programs and then we've done the work for you!
