Overlooked Talent Pools

Do these questions sound familiar?
If they do, you are not alone.

Employers across industries face the burden of STEM talent gaps and understand the imperative to increase diversity in STEM roles. Yet, many employers turn to the same populations, geographies, and systems to find talent year after year. In doing so, they are either missing out on viable sources of talent entirely, or they underestimate the potential power of their unique role in growing and strengthening such pools.

STEMconnector’s Overlooked Talent Pools Data Series offers a clear, data-driven picture of under-represented and often overlooked talent pools, allowing you to deepen your understanding of these populations and make more informed decisions. The initial populations to be covered in these compelling, accurate, and timely data briefs will include:

  • Black & African Americans
  • Rural Residents & Communities
  • Hispanic/Latinos
  • American Indian/Alaska Natives
  • Military Veterans
  • Incumbent (or Current) STEM Workers

STEMconnector members have access to additional data visualizations and analyses on each of these demographics through the Presentation Builder tool.
