Let’s start by examining closely our workforce today and why we don’t have an inclusive and diverse tech workforce:
As the demand for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) jobs continues to grow, companies need to focus on sustainably building equity into such opportunities. Discovery Education strategically partners with like-minded organizations, such as the Caterpillar Foundation, to deliver engaging learning experiences every single day to classrooms in the U.S. and across the world to foster more pathways for STEM careers.
There’s no denying that the world has undergone major changes in the past year that have affected individuals, families, communities, the workforce and the economy as a whole.
Digitally driven careers are for everyone.
Shaping the future – and diversity – of the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workforce starts with education today.
Research shows that young girls like STEM subjects, but as they get older, something changes. They start feeling like STEM isn’t for them based on outdated stereotypes about the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
Each year, as the Chamber Foundation hosts the Talent Forward national workforce conference, we focus on talent—educating and training, talent tech and data, recruiting, hiring, and upskilling. With no shortage of talent challenges, the opportunities for informative discussion are endless. While a day devoted to dissecting talent-related topics could focus solely on the problems, Talent Forward is all about the solutions.
