Philadelphia STEM Ecosystem
Equity Collective Workgroups
The success of the Philadelphia STEM Equity Collective is dependent on active participation, involvement, and convening of our community partners.
The purpose of the workgroups is to identify, develop and implement strategies to achieve our short and long-term outcomes. The Collective aims to include the public and experts to identify best practices and address social inequities. Though the workgroups will establish their own work plans, there are some responsibilities that are shared among all groups, including the Steering Committee. the Student Advisory Council and the Village Advisory Council.
