The Challenge

Healthcare will add more jobs between 2016 and 2026 than any other industry

By 2050, minorities will account for greater than 40% of the U.S. population, yet make up less than 16% of the STEM workforce

Women today constitute almost 50% of the labor force, yet only 28% of STEM workers

Our senior population grows and people live longer (10,000 people a day turn 65) including our professional healthcare workforce, creating unprecedented demand on the healthcare system

Completion of STEM college majors is on the decline

The Solution

An enhanced, comprehensive STEM curriculum implemented in any high school (public, private, charter, or faith-based in any geographic location (urban, suburban, or rural)

Diversity and Equity in STEM education are achieved by leveling opportunities for students of all backgrounds to succeed

Career shadowing in a broad range of health science industries

Long-term mentoring from high school to professional career

Longitudinal tracking impacts outcomes across all student populations by tracking: gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic, geographic region, grades, retention, college graduation, career progression

The Impact

A dramatic increase in students entering STEM post-secondary education, progressing to health science careers

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the workplace

Next-generation skills match industry needs to impact quality, cost, and emerging demands

Equity in STEM is achieved by developing an underrepresented workforce for upward mobility in professional STEM careers
