Links are provided to Stanford and national organizations that focus on aiding and encouraging underrepresented students in their pursuit of STEM degrees and careers. Organizations are grouped by scope and listed by subject. Brief descriptions of the organizations are provided with insight into what they believe in and the programming they may hold. By following their webpage link, you can find ways to get involved through newsletter signups and much more. Many of these student organizations encourage people of any gender and background that supports their goals to attend their events and join their group!

The last tab of this LibGuide provides links to National Societies and Organizations, many of which have chapters on Stanford campus. On their website you will find ways to get connected and participate in their events and/or conferences they may hold.
