functioning with a social mission

We’re proud to work toward a social mission that’s at the root of our DNA as a business – supporting women and girls in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). Keep reading for updates on partnerships we’ve developed to effectively increase women’s opportunities in STEM.

As a team of scientists, developers, engineers, and generally people who nerd out over all things data-driven, we at function feel strongly about encouraging others to find their path in STEM. STEM = science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and it’s a key part of function’s DNA. In general, women and girls are underrepresented in these fields and our social mission is to support and provide opportunities for them in this space.

who is girlstart

Girlstart is an organization with a mission near and dear to our hearts – educating, exposing, and exciting young girls about STEM. ✨ They’re big on piquing girls' interests in the field at a young age, giving them better access to higher education, and providing hands-on experiences in the STEM space. And we are all about that.

our partnership

This is just the beginning. We'll be collaborating with Girlstart over the next few years to continue increasing interest in STEM electives, majors, and careers, and uplifting girls in this space. Our goal is to eventually work our way up to even bigger initiatives...but we'll keep those up our lab coat sleeves until the time is right!

keep looking out

Right here for more info + updates as we move forward with this mission we’re so passionate about and honored to work with Girlstart on.
