Covestro and g4g are working together to help inspire the future leaders of STEM!

In June of 2015, our global partnership began with an inspiring mission to get more girls in the STEM fields across the world. Since then, we've launched together in Covestro's headquarter city of Pittsburgh, PA, as well as in Houston, TX,   crossed seas to New Delhi and Mumbai (India) and took on one of the biggest cities in the world: Moscow, Russia! In addition, Covestro and g4g collaborated in Brussels and Barcelona for our signature "g4g Day" events, allowing girls to become "Covestro Future Scientists"! 

Together, we link science to the innovative materials technology Covestro is renowned for, especially with hands-on workshops that demonstrate the fun in polymer chemistry. All this and more with one incredible team to show us how curious, courageous, and colorful the future can be!

We are always looking for like-minded partners who endorse our activities in countries all over the world, so it’s fantastic to have a global company like Covestro on board. It’s scientists, technicians, strategists, and marketers that can provide first-hand experience of what it’s like working in an innovative and forward-thinking environment, and can demonstrate how rewarding it is being involved in the exciting world of science.

We are keen to fire up the interests of girls of all ages and backgrounds in STEM subjects, particularly in developing countries where they might not have the same opportunities as their counterparts in other parts of Europe and the world. This is why our goals are perfectly in line with those of g4g, which has a clear passion for instilling confidence in girls, and encouraging them to share in the fun of science in all its forms.
