About the Diversity in STEM Event Series

According to a 2021 Pew Research Center report, Black and Hispanic workers remain underrepresented in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) workforce compared with their share of all workers, while the representation of women varies widely across all STEM occupations. According to the same report, current trends in STEM degree attainment appear unlikely to substantially narrow these gaps.

Within the Cincinnati region, we've seen an increasing need for STEM talent at companies of all sizes in all industries, making a diverse STEM talent pipeline essential to the growth of our region.

This quarterly event series is a partnership between the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky African American Chamber, Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA, The Gaskins Foundation, and Apprenti Cincinnati. The goal of the series is to showcase the need to bridge the diversity gap in STEM education and careers – as well as initiatives and available resources supporting these efforts – to continue building our region for the future.
