Latinas in STEM Announce Partnership With LUPE Fund

LUPE Fund and Latinas in STEM Announce Partnership LUPE Fund, Inc., a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate, empower and engage Latinas to promote leadership and civic engagement is pleased to announce a partnership with Latinas in STEM, a non-profit organization whose mission to inspire and empower Latinas to pursue, thrive and advance in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.

Latinas in STEM

The mission of Latinas in STEM is to inspire and empower Latinas to pursue and thrive in STEM careers. As such, we have chosen to create an online space utilizing Mighty Networks to allow our members to achieve that mission. This space will be used as the Latinas in STEM Membership Portal. You will be able to register for membership, pay your dues (monthly & yearly options), maintain your profile up-to-date and obtain/share resources across the nation. For the next 3 months, we will be providing free access to all current and past members. This time period will allow all of us to build out the portal as a community. Afterwards, you will be required to pay your dues (members in current standing will be invoiced when their membership expires). We want to foster an environment where Latinas in STEM can connect, inspire, support, mentor and help other Latinas in STEM thrive in their businesses and careers. Our goal is to work together to grow and thrive as a community. That can only happen when we are committed to collaboration and true knowledge sharing. Latinas in STEM invites you to REGISTER, create your profile, review the Community Guidelines and introduce yourself.

We have an important election year this year. We’re fighting back against what is coming out of Washington and working to enact progressive policies right here on our state to help grow the middle class.
