CHARLESTON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--STEM Premier today announced that the company has received a Diversity and Inclusion “DANDI” Award for excellence and progression in diversity and inclusion. The company won the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) category.
The STEM Premier platform enables students, ages 13 and up, to build personal profiles showcasing their skills and talents so colleges, technical schools and companies can view the profiles and connect directly with students to share opportunities such as internships, scholarships and job openings in the STEM fields and beyond. The online service allows high school and college students to market themselves and optimize their “personal brand” and guide them toward their education and career goals.
STEM Premier was founded in South Carolina in 2013 and has since expanded nationally – middle school, high school and college students from all 50 states are actively utilizing the platform. Strategic partnerships with organizations like ACT strengthen the mutual goal of identifying STEM-interested and STEM-capable talent at an earlier age and exposing them to the real opportunities out there.
STEM Premier is actively collaborating with school districts, post-secondary institutions and businesses across the country to provide an innovative way to connect with the pipeline of talent and increase the amount of students entering academic and technical STEM careers.
“We are honored to be recognized for this award and sharing this category with such exemplary organizations,” said STEM Premier Business Development & Diversity Director, Cara Florence. “All students deserve the access and exposure to the types of opportunities available following their academic career in order to prepare and be competitive in the global job market.”
