STEM Career Awareness Day 2015 Shows Hundreds of East Bay High School Students a Future of Innovation and Opportunity

300 Students toured 20 STEM companies and learned first-hand about the kinds of careers they may have with as little as a one-year community college certificate—or as much as a Ph.D. on April 28.

STEM Career Awareness Day 2015 is the product of a growing public/private partnership to improve science education locally, recruit more women and minorities into science-based careers, and give businesses a practical way to contribute to educating a diverse STEM workforce. Organized by California State University, East Bay, key partners and financial support come from the Bayer USA Foundation, Wareham Development, and the East Bay Economic Development Alliance. STEM Career Day is a continuously expanding model begun by Bayer HealthCare in 1993 for local students in its Biotech Partners program.
Why? There are more than 150,000 STEM and STEM-related jobs in the Bay Area (representing over 15% of all jobs in the region). There are fewer applicants per open position and STEM jobs take longer to fill than non-STEM jobs at all education levels from sub-bachelors through advanced degrees. In the next seven years, STEM jobs are predicted to grow two-fold faster than non-STEM jobs.
