Leveraging STEM for Social Change


Washington STEM is a statewide nonprofit advancing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. We're working to ensure that all students have equal opportunity to benefit from the transformational possibilities that STEM has to offer.

Washington ranks among the top states in the nation in the concentration of STEM jobs, and opportunities are increasing. By 2030, more than 70% of in-demand, family-wage jobs here will require credentials beyond high school; 68% of those jobs will require postsecondary STEM credentials or STEM literacy. But students aren't equitably or adequately prepared to take advantage of these opportunities. Today, only 40% of all Washington students are on track to earn a credential after high school.


In our state STEM is at the forefront of discovery and serves as one of the largest pathways to family-wage careers and long-term economic security. STEM pathways have promise like few others in Washington and it is imperative that Black, Brown, and Indigenous students, rural and low-income students, and girls have access. Washington STEM is working to ensure that all students can benefit from the transformational possibilities that STEM skills and education beyond high school can offer.

Long-Term Impact

Washington STEM is leveraging STEM for social change, removing barriers to credential attainment, and creating pathways to long-term economic security for historically excluded students. We envision a state where skin color, zip code, income, and gender do not predict educational and career outcomes.
