What’s Working? A Deeper Dive into Member Practices
Wednesday, August 28, 12 – 1pm EST
The driving force of STEMconnector’s value is our cross-sector network of passionate leaders who are dedicated to building a diverse and sustainable STEM workforce. Whether industry, nonprofit, or postsecondary, our members understand that no one sector has a monopoly, and that collaboration across boardrooms, classrooms, and communities is key. By sharing the initiatives, collaborations, and general best practices happening across our network in the What’s Working Booklet, we hope to learn from each other and continue to grow and scale our progress.
In this webinar you will hear from two of our members Micron and Talent Path about their successful programs and initiatives in STEM talent development.
- Micron will discuss their Girls Going Tech Program, an all-day STEM Education program with the basic goal to help girls see a future for themselves in a STEM profession.
- Talent Path will share the ‘Talent Path Way’, they prepare high-potential early career, career changing and career re-entry talent for opportunities in today’s technology workforce.
Building and sustaining successful programs and initiatives in STEM talent development, whether through working with youth programing, targeting hidden talent pools, or developing the skills of early workforce entrants from overlooked communities, requires patience, drive, and long-term thinking. This reference guide showcases only the beginning of what we know we can accomplish as a network, and we look forward to continuing to share and learn from each of the organizations we are fortunate enough to work with. Together, we will eliminate the nuanced gaps in STEM talent.
