The first ever employer-led Global
The first ever employer-led Global STEM Talent Summit in 2016 was a true turning point for the STEM praxis moment as we fully transitioned from STEM theory into action. This was demonstrated at previous Summits by learning how best in class industry partners implemented STEM talent development strategies to deliver sustainable enterprise growth. In 2017, the Global STEM Talent Summit will move beyond conventional wisdom in the development of next practice strategies that boost the STEM talent pipeline. With more than 430 million STEM jobs to fill by 2030, companies see the urgent need to discuss collective strategies that drive scale and speed to future proof the STEM pipeline rather than individually compete for the diminishing talent pool.
With over 40 strategic partners in ( 75+ by 2018) totaling combined revenues of more than $2 trillion and more than 6 million employees, GSTS is not a one-off but rather part of a unique sequence of strategically connected summits supported by a large coalition of strong, impactful partners with exemplary leadership capabilities that define the future of STEM talent. The Global STEM Talent Summit, with the coalition and voice of its strategic partners, has become the recognized authority in STEM talent thought leadership. Based on the fact that many companies today are experiencing a major STEM shortfall, the 2017 Global STEM Talent Summit is focused on delivering short-term STEM talent development models and leading next practices which positively impact business performance. This Summit will gain insights in the development, implementation, execution and impact of best in class STEM talent which can be applied in the US and globally.
