Diversity in the STEM Teaching Workforce


The Smithsonian Science Education Center in collaboration with Shell Oil Company is working with a Steering Committee of experts on minority participation in teaching careers. The Steering Committee is composed of education thought leaders, including experts from PK-12 and postsecondary education, Minority-Serving Institutions, and nonprofits. Together we will attract and retain STEM teachers from underrepresented groups resulting in 30,000 new and existing teachers by 2030.
