AIG and g4g are working together to help inspire young women in science!

In October 2015, the incredible AIG-g4g Sports meets Science in the OXO Tower in London kickstarted our collaboration! Together, we linked Science to Sports, Technology and Safety and demonstrated the role played by AIG in a fun & interactive way. 

Since then, AIG and g4g have collectively inspired more than 700 "greenlight girls" aged 11 -15 by launching community events in London, g4g Day events in Lithuania, Guildford UK, and NYC, and collaborated in Brussels and Barcelona. Stay tuned for so much more to come!

On 18 November in London, we invited ~70 girls for a full day of STEM discovery held at Surrey University in Guildford while learning about M&M statistics, DNA, & virtual reality!

By the end, the girls were treated to a special surprise appearance by 3 players from the New Zealand Black Ferns who helped us demonstrate the importance of science in sport!

                                                                                              g4g@work with AIG in NYC!

On 12 December, the g4g team and the New York Chapter of AIG's Global Women in Technology (GWIT) hosted the first g4g@work event at AIG's NY headquarters and led a series of engaging workshops for a diverse group of 50 girls.


It is important to demonstrate that science (meaning science, technology, engineering and math) is linked to everything around us – and is a part of any career path you may choose to follow. These events and our partnership with AIG is a perfect opportunity to demonstrate this link and to inspire the next generation to look ahead to their future.
- Melissa Rancourt, Founder & Chairman, g4g
I am always impressed by the level of enthusiasm and support from our wonderful volunteers. We wouldn’t be able to deliver these great events and engage our ‘greenlight girls’ to be inspired by STEM subjects without it. I’m also incredibly thrilled and proud that we’ve taken this ‘across the pond’ to New York City! It’s such a great continuation of our partnership with g4g. The next stop is Dublin, Ireland which we hope to coincide with our volunteering month of April!
