Launch Event Recap
Thank you to everyone who attended the launch of the STEM Careers Coalition, and we appreciate the consideration of those who were unable to attend. On November, we announced the first-of-its-kind cross-sector collaborative bridging industry and education to build the next generation of solution seekers.
We heard about the importance of connecting STEM from K to Careers, as Discovery Education CEO Paul Ilse declared,
“Our district partners want to prepare and propel their kids into the jobs your companies need them to fill. But they need help showing them what STEM work actually looks like.”
Likewise, we responded to a call to action from Astronaut Leland Melvin, who said, “We have to let kids see these jobs to make the connection to the pipeline, that’s the secret sauce.”
This is just the beginning. We have an aggressive goal to reach 10 million students in five years with dynamic in-classroom resources, a careers portal that amplifies and connects students to the future of work, and by connecting our Coalition partner employees with STEM activities designed to make career connections in their communities. We have a bold vision. We see critical workforce pathways for our students to explore, and we are all in this to support their journey.
