"It's scientists, technicians, strategists and marketers who 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." - Melissa Rancourt, founder of greenlight for girls
We are keen to fire up the interest 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... This is why our goals are perfectly in line with those of g4g, which has a clear passion in instilling confidence in girls, and encouraging them to share in the fun of science in all its forms." - Richard Northcote, Chief Sustainability Office of Bayer MS
GIVING girls the green light to explore, discover, enjoy and master science is Melissa Rancourt’s biggest goal... The sciences are just as much about reasoning and logic as they are about creativity and resourcefulness.
