America needs a workforce skilled in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and a notable group of companies and organizations is uniting to ensure that the nation gets the message. This summer, June 27 – 29, thousands of education, policy and industry thought leaders will convene in Dallas, Texas, for STEM Solutions 2012, a groundbreaking leadership summit that will bring the best minds and best practices together on a national stage to open the conversation and develop solutions to the STEM skills shortage.
Corporate Voices for Working Families, a leading non-profit buisness membership organization, engages the business community in advancing postsecondary education completion and workforce readiness training through its Learn and Earn initiative. This initiative seeks to identify, promote and encourage innovative partnerships between employers and community colleges to help low-income young adults earn a living while continuing their education. This work is made possible by the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and its Postsecondary Success Strategy.
