Next What’s Working Webinar on 9/25 to feature Micron, Black & Veatch and Arlington Independent School District

Please join us for our Webinar Series
What’s Working?: A Deeper Dive into Member Practices

Wednesday, September 25, 12 – 1pm EST

STEMconnector’s What’s Working initiative draws on the strength members and highlights our cross-sector network of passionate leaders who are dedicated to building a diverse and sustainable STEM workforce. Through sharing the initiatives, collaborations, and general best practices happening across our network through the What’s Working Booklet and the What’s Working Webinar series, we hope to learn from each other and continue to grow and scale our progress. The next Webinar is happening on Wednesday, September 25 from 12 – 1pm EST.

In this webinar you will hear from three of our members Micron, Black & Veatch and Arlington Independent School District 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.
  • Black & Veatch will explain their NextOpps program, their internal gig platform that connects the business needs with the professionals.
  • Arlington Independent School District will share their vision that 100 percent of their students will graduate exceptionally prepared for college, career and citizenship and how they plan to achieve that vision.


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.
