The STEM Innovation Task Force (SITF) is comprised of 36 industry, government, education, and non-profit leaders. Members include companies such as Cisco, Cognizant, Deloitte, Dow, Dassault Systemes, KPMG, PepsiCo, PTC, Sodexo, Tata Consultancy Services, Walmart as well as leading educators and governmental organizations. The SITF has a grand vision of “Accelerating sustainable STEM careers and wealth through innovation science and excellence in tomorrow’s new economy.” The task force will accomplish their agenda of developing STEM human capital through a number of high powered working groups that focus on certain priority areas of STEM innovation, including the STEM Career Accelerator Day, STEM 2.0, collaboration with the Million Women Mentors program, the STEM Higher Ed Council, and others.

This session will focus on an overview of all SITF programs with specific focus on STEM 2.0. STEM 2.0 defines capability platforms that lie in the gap employers see that exists today between what we require and what the current educational ecosystem is producing. This session, presented by the SITF co-chairs, touches on our collaboration with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and will present ways for organizations to join the movement, to make a real impact!
