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, we hope to learn from each other and continue to grow and scale our progress in our new webinar series “What’s Working? A Deeper Dive into Member Practices.” The first one will take place on Thursday, July 11th from 12 – 1pm EST.
- BP will discuss their STEM Ambassador Program, a volunteer-led initiative designed to mobilize and empower employees to make meaningful contributions in STEM.
- Tallo will present about their online platform, the Tallo App, that connects talent with opportunities. The Tallo app assists students in designing a career pathway, educators in recruiting top talent to their schools, and employers in developing a stable, continuous talent pipeline.
This webinar series builds off of our What’s Working Booklet, a reference guide from STEMconnector members that showcases the required patience, drive and long-term thinking that it takes to build and sustain 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.
