Throughout the year there are ample opportunities to tie your social media efforts to national days and weeks of celebration in STEM, workforce development, and diversity initiatives. We have put together sample social media information for you so that you can effortlessly engage in these celebrations yourself.

Below every month will be a campaign list with descriptions for you to find, the hashtags, info, and more.

Some campaigns will correspond to certain days of the month, those will be below in a bulleted list

You can edit these however you see fit to match your own voice or objectives. If you see something missing from this calendar that you’d like us to include, or have materials you’re already creating for these events, reach out to us so that we can be sure to share them as well!
