Description of Program

The Philadelphia Education Fund, in collaboration with the Philadelphia STEM Equity Collective, has assembled a group of individuals and organizations interested in partnerships between Regional Industries and STEM Education (RISE). The goals of this group and these meetings are to:  
1.      Equip industries with a understanding of the Philadelphia STEM landscape.
2.      Provide a forum in which participants can share successes, challenges, and strategies.
3.      Explore ways in which members can collaborate on projects.
4.      Cultivate partnerships between industries and education organizations.
5.      Provide opportunities for industries to showcase their STEM engagement.
6.      Continue to authentically champion diversity, equity and inclusion.
Our meetings are held on the third Monday of every month from 12-1 PM (except on holidays, when the meeting is pushed back one week) On February 20, we will continue to discuss and design our online, two-way directory of industry partners and education programs.
