Building a Vibrant STEM Community
OSE Annual Survey
Thank you so much for your engagement with the Omaha STEM Ecosystem and our partners throughout the past year. We are partnering with Parlay Consulting Firm to collect your vital feedback as we continue to facilitate connections, collaborations, and communication to strengthen the local STEM workforce and pipeline. We have been conducting our annual survey since 2016 and we use the feedback provided to make data-informed decisions and plans moving forward. Your response to the survey helps to ensure we are getting a broad picture of our engagement in the community. The survey is very brief and takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. We would greatly appreciate you taking a moment to complete the survey by March 18.
