During this action-oriented exchange, C-Suite level executives will discuss the role of industry and education in charting the diverse workforce pipeline roadmap for the future.
As we grapple with COVID’s impact across industry, an area seemingly immune to the pandemic’s fallout are the job opportunities available for qualified STEM professionals. Since the COVID outbreak began, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has projected strong growth for STEM jobs in the U.S. The increasing challenge, however, is the lack of diversity within the STEM pipeline needed to strengthen economic growth into the future.
The prospects for increasing diversity in the STEM workforce are closely tied to education and the pathways presented to today’s diverse student population. Join top-level executives and decision-makers from America’s leading companies to examine STEM workforce development through the lens of equity. Together, they will discuss the role business and education leaders play in developing a roadmap to diversify our workforce pipeline.
Featured guests will explore topics such as:
