"We need to create a culture and ecosystem in STEM that include underrepresented groups and encourages their and others’ participation -- a culture and ecosystem that don’t care how or when you got there but welcome you when you arrive."
"It is important for girls to see themselves as leaders, because that leadership identity is more likely to carry into adulthood when it is ingrained in how a female defines herself from the beginning."
