A major ingredient for future growth of the St. Louis region is a robust technology-centric workforce. Nationally, some project the addition of more than 1 million jobs will be created in STEM related fields such as cybersecurity and analytics. Recognizing this impending deficit in the workforce, industry, government and academia have joined forces in recent years to create STEM initiatives in an effort to increase the number of college graduates in STEM related disciplines. An important part of the strategy is to begin to nurture interest very early in the educational process.

Panel Participants:

  • Pamela Jackson, Vice President of Technology, Emerson Corporation
  • Brian Crouse, Vice President of Education at Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry
  • Kelvin Carter, CTE St. Louis Public Schools
  • Stephen White, Dean - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math / St. Louis Community College - Florissant Valley

The panel will address questions including:

  • What are some of the major efforts that have been undertaken?
  • How have these programs been received?
  • Are there tangible outcomes to gauge the impact of these programs?
  • Are there additional efforts we should begin doing to advance these programs in the future?
