Dreaming Big: What's Gender Got to Do With It? Phase II

Expanding on the 2012 project, Professor Diane Grossman's Dream Big II supports the organization and hosting of a conference. 

Dreaming Big II expands upon a project begun in 2012 that studied middle school girls’ and boys’ attitudes toward careers and their futures, including adult influences, the significance of gendered messaging, and differences between girls and boys and between girls and Girl Scout girls. The current grant supports the organization and hosting of a conference of at least 150 participants representing nearby schools, other girl-serving organizations, funders, and political leaders in November 2014.

The conference organizing team comprises representatives from Simmons University, the Girls Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts and five new girl-serving organizations.
