Nearly every aspect of how Americans work has changed over the past 50 years. Our nation’s need for qualified STEM professionals has never been greater. This is magnified by the challenge of sustaining a diverse pipeline that supports young women and underrepresented groups in STEM. This gap in workforce readiness presents schools, communities and corporations with compelling reasons to collaborate and identify seamless pathways for students to build highly needed skills that connect to future college and career opportunities.
During this special edition of Equity Talks: STEM Careers Coalition Executive Roundtable, a panel of America’s top-level executives, education leaders and decision-makers, will share how they are joining forces to exponentially grow STEM workforce readiness and ensure all students are provided with opportunities to develop skills that allow them to participate in the evolving workforce.
