On December 12th, the White House Office of Science is Technology Policy, in collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, hosted the White House Summit on STEMM Equity and Excellence.

Among the many distinguished speakers at the Summit was PE’s Executive Director, Natasha Smith-Walker. We are proud to have such strong representation at an event that features many of the people that will continue to shape the state of STEM education in the United States for years to come.

The White House Summit on STEMM Equity and Excellence brought together people from across government and businesses, civic, education, higher-ed, nonprofit, community-based, and philanthropic organizations committed to working collaboratively to build a more equitable STEMM ecosystem. As critical, transformative new science and technology investments in education, research and workforce begin to take shape, the United States has an historic opportunity to meet President Biden’s Day 1 call to advance equity for people who have been historically underserved and leverage this once-in-a-generation moment to power a more just, inclusive, and competitive science and technology enterprise.
