We Set the Vision
+ Drive Impact

We are an independent nonprofit comprised of knowledgeable and well-respected education and STEM experts committed to removing barriers to STEM education and postsecondary credentials.

We envision a state where skin color, zip code, income, and gender do not predict educational and career outcomes. And that’s what our team of passionate and knowledgeable experts work toward each and every day.

Headquartered in Seattle, WA, and launched in 2011, Washington STEM was founded on the principles of equity, partnership, and sustainability. We seek smart, scalable solutions that lead to removing barriers and creating equitable access for historically underserved students—students who will become the leaders, critical thinkers, and creators that will tackle the biggest challenges facing our state, nation, and the world. STEM is one of the largest pathways to family-sustaining wage careers and long-term economic security in Washington state and it is critical that Black, Brown, and Indigenous students, students in rural or low-income communities, and young women have access.

MISSION

Washington STEM is a statewide, education nonprofit leveraging STEM for social change, removing barriers to credential attainment, and creating pathways to long-term economic security for systemically underserved students.
