Strategic Plan

Annual Reports


The committees are the action working groups that move the goals of the strategic plan forward. The committees have representatives from each of the six sectors we serve. Integrating the six sectors into each of the committees, we created a forum of collaboration around solutions for STEM issues.

Identifying the Problem: Omaha is experiencing a shortfall of STEM professionals similar to what the nation is also experiencing. 

Taking Action: We are connecting STEM programs to facilitate efficient and effective career pathways, that grow the number of local STEM professionals and create balance between industry demand and available talent.
