The strength and impact of the Omaha STEM Ecosystem requires a diverse and engaged group of community stakeholders to be successful in building a STEM talent pipeline. At present, STEM programs providers, families/students, business, and community partners are not connected and often time operating in a silo. Currently there was not an overarching structure to bring community partners together.
The Diverse and Engaged Stakeholder Committee is building capacity of collaborations and impacting consistent engagement to bring community partners together to advance STEM learning as a priority of the Omaha STEM Ecosystem. This includes the six sectors of: Families, Non-Profit, Education, Government, Business, and Science Centers/Museums.
