NOUN: a woman admired or idealized for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities

Girls of Promise participants are placed on teams in order to foster team building and leadership skills. However, instead of referring to teams as numbers or colors, our teams are named after amazing women throughout history who have achieved greatness in STEM fields – exposing participants to even more career possibilities.

WFA’s student volunteers from Mount St. Mary Academy have researched the women pictured below and compiled biographies on each of them that will be posted on our blog.


Nominate an Amazing Woman

Contact us by email, through the blog, or on our social media to recommend an amazing woman who deserves to be recognized as a team’s heroine. Our MSM volunteers will review the information you provide, research her further, and compile information to add her to our list of amazing women.
