Advocacy is the most important tool we have as individuals, and as collective groups, to educate the decision-makers around us to understand how their policies affect our lives. This toolkit will empower you with the confidence to advocate beyond your current influence, to understand different forms of advocacy and to raise your voice to be heard – no matter what you are advocating for.

At SCWIST, our main advocacy goal is to reach equity for women and girls pursuing STEM careers – and to create a lasting, positive impact for women and all equity-seeking groups. For information about issues that women in STEM face; and policies and best practices that you can advocate for, please visit the STEM Diversity Champions Toolkit.
