IF/THEN is asking young women ages
10-18 to join the IF/THEN initiative as members of our Girls Advisory Council!
As a member, you’ll be helping us and the American Association for the
Advancement of Science pick the women in science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics (STEM) who will serve as IF/THEN Ambassadors, helping spread the
word about science careers to young women just like you! You’ll also have
the opportunity to review and provide your opinions on other content, including
YouTube and TV shows in development focused on careers in STEM, profiles of our
IF/THEN Ambassadors and more.
Interested? Here’s what it takes:
- If you’re between the
ages of 10-17, please read the application and agreement form carefully
with your parent. When you’ve both signed it, send it back to us at IfThenGirlsCouncil@lhholdings.net. If you’re 18,
you need only fill out the application, sign it and return it to us at the
email address above.
- If your application is
accepted by or before June 12th, then on June 14 we’ll send you an email
with a link to 5-10 short videos from women working in science careers who
want to be IF/THEN Ambassadors. They may include doctors, engineers,
chemists, sports scientists, mathematicians, astronomers and more. We’ll
ask you to watch at least the first 5 minutes of each video, then answer a
few short survey questions about each video.
- You must view all the
videos and answer the survey questions by June 17 (we think the
whole project will take about 1-2 hours).
- The information in the
videos must be kept confidential (but of course, you can share it with
- On August 16, we may
send you a new set of videos, with responses to your survey questions due
on August 19th.
We look forward to receiving your application. We’ll email you back
shortly to let you know if your membership has been approved.
