The National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE) partnered with the Student Research Foundation, the American Association of Physics Teachers, Destination Imagination, and the National Girls Collaborative, to form the Research Consortium on STEM Career Pathways in order to broaden participation in STEM by sparking a dialogue among students, families and educators about students’ career paths. The Consortium identified opportunities, challenges, and promising practices for leveraging equity to meet STEM workforce needs and pave the way for students to realize their potential in a STEM career. We appreciate this partnership and highlighted the Research Consortium’s support through our national webinar series last fall, a poster session at our annual National Summit for Educational Equity, and their continued engagement in our work. Through partnerships such as these, we can effectively combine our efforts, resources, and skills in identifying and addressing equity gaps in STEM educational and career pathways, thus more fully realizing the potential of our students and citizens.
