Governor’s Vision: A Working Washington Built on Education and Innovation….Where all Washingtonians Thrive.
Increasing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) talent in Washington communities is imperative to fill jobs, grow the economy, and close the opportunity gaps for the next generation.
In 2013, the Legislature passed Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill 1872 (E2SHB 1872), calling for the creation of the Governor’s STEM Education Innovation Alliance (the “Governor’s STEM Alliance”). Its members were to represent a broad range of business, labor, nonprofit, and educational organizations, with the role of advising the Governor on strategic planning and the formation of effective partnerships in support of the STEM education initiatives.
Dashboards and Report
The STEM Alliance was charged with developing interactive dashboards and submitting an annual STEM Education Report Card to the Legislature in order to report on STEM economic and workforce trends, measure progress in improving STEM education in Washington, and communicate strategic priorities.
These data for Washington’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Talent Supply and Demand help Washington track its progress in fueling a strong and vibrant economy in the state.
The Dashboard and Report Cards have been funded since 2016 by the National Governor’s Association and Washington State Employment Security Department’s Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) grants. Additional support from the Governor’s STEM Education Innovation Alliance, Washington Student Achievement Council, Washington STEM, and the Washington state Office of Financial Management.
