CSR Press Release

Submitted by: Bayer Corporation

Categories: Academia, Corporate Social Responsibility

Posted: Apr 04, 2012 – 10:00 AM EST

 

WASHINGTON, Apr. 04 /CSRwire/ - Bayer Corporation will host a forum on the state of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) diversity at U.S. colleges.  As the nation struggles to attract more women, African-Americans, Hispanics and American Indians to its STEM fields, the forum will examine the undergraduate college environment in which these students make their career decisions.

The forum comes on the heels of a new report from the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) titled, “Engage to Excel: Producing One Million Additional College Graduates with Degrees in STEM,” as well as a Bayer-commissioned survey which polled STEM department chairs at the nation’s top 200 research universities about their efforts to recruit and retain female and underrepresented minority STEM undergraduate students.
