Panel: St. Louis Regional STEM Status & Future Direction

Wednesday, June 22, 6-8 p.m.
Whitaker Hall Auditorium

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 cyber security 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.

This free event is hosted by the WashU Technology & Leadership Center and the Institute for School Partnership, and is open to the public.


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
