About Donna Milgram the Presenter:
Donna has Dedicated her Entire Career to Helping Educational Institutions have Actual Increases in Female Enrollment and Retention.
Donna Milgram has been the Principal Investigator of 5 National Science Foundation grants. She has worked intensively with schools—boots on the ground—to develop the strategies and system that help educators enroll up to 25-50% female students in STEM/CTE classes.
Donna's NSF-funded CalWomenTech Project was highlighted by the National Science Foundation for demonstrating significant achievement and program effectiveness and chosen as 1 of 3 model projects by the American Association of University Women (AAUW).
After over 30 years of service in the field, she has "cracked the code" and developed an 10 point system for recruitment and a 12-point system for retention that provides numerical results in about one year—not just the hope of eventual change 5-10 years down the road that nobody can measure.

sure we had actual results linked to the different programs and events that we were holding.
Within a year’s time, we had increased female enrollment in our IT & CS Department from 149 to 226 female students and male enrollment had also increased from 751 to 1009 male students.
Since then, it has grown organically and blossomed into something that our college just does naturally.”
