Summary

STEM Advantage supports women and under-served communities by providing paid, full-time summer internships, mentors, and scholarship funds; we support undergraduate students who are enrolled full-time in the California State University System, the largest and most diverse university system in the nation, and are majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM). We are a diverse talent pipeline organization; we launch the next generation of STEM talent through our 360 degree program.

Challenge

Women, African Americans and Latinos comprise 70% of the total available workforce, yet make-up only 20% of the STEM workforce. There are over 1 million unfilled STEM jobs in California alone.

Solution

Mentor, prepare and inspire women and underserved communities to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through paid internships, mentorships, scholarships, and professional development workshops. We utilize a collective impact model to address gaps between the talent pool and talent acquisition, focusing on women and under-represented talent.

Long-Term Impact

STEM Advantage develops a talent network, providing a well-needed diversity pipeline to the STEM workforce, especially for the technology sector, and provides economic opportunities to students from disadvantaged neighborhoods. Increasing our numbers of scholars served increases diversity and inclusion in STEM along gender, ethnic, and socioeconomic lines. Our impact will be great, especially among communities that hold a vast amount of human potential but remain underserved.
