This is the mission of the national STEM Food & Ag Council, a public-private partnership launched in 2013 to bring together food and agriculture companies, educational institutions, government agencies and the youth development community. Together, we have enormous potential to drive private investment and public policy making, and we intend to put our influence to good use. The STEM Food & Ag Council has worked to create a story that clearly captures the food and agriculture industry’s human capital needs and the enormous career opportunities that it offers anyone who wants to make a difference in the world. This annual report is the culmination of our work. It lays out our insights and direction, and it offers a common path for creating a more robust food and ag human capital pipeline. We offer it with the fervent hope that it will be an important step toward leading the way to global food security in the decades ahead. Whether you are in agribusiness, an educator or perhaps a young person with an interest in STEM careers, this is your opportunity to be a part of something big. Join us and together let’s eliminate global hunger.
