Promising Practices for Strengthening the Regional STEM Workforce Development Ecosystem
The number of occupations requiring STEM capabilities is growing: between 2003 and 2010 the number of workers reporting that their job requires at least a bachelor’s-degree level of facility in STEM increased 28 percent, from 12.9 million to 16.5 million. The breadth and the depth of student experiences in STEM courses, labs, and applied learning activities ensures that they move into their careers with the skills necessary to help meet a region’s STEM workforce needs. When businesses work in collaboration with colleges, universities, and other community stakeholders, opportunities are bolstered for students to gain the full range of valuable skills the market demands.
Please join us for a webinar with co-chair Dick Celeste, former Governor of Ohio, and committee member Susan Lavrakas, from the Aerospace Industries Association, as they discuss the findings and recommendations of a new report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, Promising Practices for Strengthening the Regional STEM Workforce Development Ecosystem.
