About SheHeroes

SheHeroes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to inspire girls ages 8-14 by providing career role models. We create video profiles of successful women, many in STEM fields, to encourage girls to dream big for their futures. Our website is designed to be a free resource for parents and kids, teachers and educators, after school programs, and career/guidance counselors.


Thanks to our sponsor, Truist Bank, SheHeroes has developed its first curriculum to help guide girls into discovering how their current interests can take them into fulfilling and exciting STEM career paths. These materials can be used independently by students, or taught by teachers in the classroom.

Our curriculum is an extension of the SheHeroes mission, but we encourage use by both girls and boys. By engaging in these lessons, students will take a deep dive not only to learn about a wide range of possible STEM careers, but to also discover themselves in the process. There are 4 individual units—The Creators, The Explorers, The Observers and The Analysts. Each unit stands alone and taps into different natural personal traits or qualities a student may identify with to engage them into a deeper exploration of the exciting careers they might enjoy. 

Educators and students can download individual units or the entire curriculum. We hope that, through this educational experience, all students can see the possibilities to apply their strengths and interests to any STEM career. Students will discover a diverse group of female STEM Pioneers that have been breaking glass ceilings and inspire students to push through their own barriers and achieve their dreams.


The issues and insecurities many young girls have with math and science are well-known. They are reflected in adulthood. While women make up 48% of the workforce, they currently hold only 24% of the jobs in STEM. Since many of the jobs of the future will be in technology and STEM, girls cannot afford to lag behind their boy counterparts in this arena. STEM graduates are the most sought after in the job marketplace, with salaries that are higher than many other careers. The goal of our curriculum is to show girls, and boys, how meaningful, diverse, and fulfilling a STEM career can be.
