Making National Impact through Regional Investments

Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas inspired a national movement following the opening of its STEM Center of Excellence, which focuses on changing the workforce pipeline in North Texas by preparing girls to pursue careers in STEM-focused fields.  The Center engages Girl Scouts’ expertise in girls, with the community’s expertise in STEM. The STEM Pledge was created from the Center’s success and today, Girl Scouts of the USA is committed to putting 2.5M girls into a progressive STEM pipeline by 2025, a $100M national commitment to change the workforce pipeline. Participants in this webinar will: 1) Understand how Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas responded to the needs of the workforce pipeline and the forward-looking approach taken to close the gap for women in STEM careers; 2) Hear what compelled the philanthropic community, especially corporate funding partners, to actively engage and support Girl Scouts’, both regionally and nationally; and 3) Learn the challenges and opportunities encountered along the way that shaped, and continue to influence, one our country’s most focused workforce development efforts.

Presenters:

  • Dr. Peter Balyta, Texas Instruments Incorporated
  • Jenn Hulett, Vice President of Human Resources for Ericsson North America and Board Member, Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas
  • Dhriti Stocks, Director of Corporate Relations, Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas
