In 2012, Anne-Marie Imafidon attended AnitaB.org’s Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) where Keynote Nora Denzel spoke about the lack of women in STEM. Anne-Marie was inspired by Denzel’s speech and by the number of GHC attendees who shared her desire to make a change. Just one year later, Anne-Marie founded Stemettes to encourage and mentor girls in STEM. Now Stemettes is annually providing five girls with the opportunity to experience GHC themselves.
