When it comes to growing the next generation of leaders, we must consider those children and young adults who will pursue careers in STEM. They will lead the largest corporations and carry the burden of making decisions within their companies that will affect the future of our planet.
When we equip our nation’s youth with the right information and training, they are prepared to face environmental challenges — of today and of the future — and blaze new trails in sustainability for our planet.
Mender recently attended and sponsored Technology Ball, presented by Tech Allies. The STEM Mentor Program particularly caught our attention. So much so that our CEO, Kent Taggart, became a STEM mentor himself. The program was developed with University of Texas at Dallas, and provides meaningful skills, opportunities and life experiences to STEM leaders of the future.
The program got us thinking: How can we (and you) support young people in STEM?
STEM research will ultimately drive advancements in environmental sustainability. STEM leaders of tomorrow will explore and discover new ways to mitigate climate change, conserve natural resources, protect ecosystems and more. By fostering the future of STEM, we foster the future of our planet.
