STRATEGY - Creating equitable and diverse education-to-career pathways (Post-Secondary)
Philadelphia K-12 schools, post-secondary institutions, and local employers work together to formalize diverse pathways that recruit, immerse, and inspire Black, Latinx and women Philadelphians to enter STEM fields
Post-secondary institutions consider a wide range of skills and experiences for entry into STEM programs of study (e.g., eliminate SAT/ACT scores).
Black, Latinx, and women Philadelphia school students have increased opportunities for remediation and preparation to enter and excel in post-secondary STEM programs.
Post-secondary degree and non-degree STEM programs have access to resources that allow them to provide real-world and career-transferrable experiences that facilitate entry into STEM careers
Philadelphia high schools and STEM employers collaborate to develop real-world and career-transferrable experiences that align to STEM careers.
Post-secondary institutions accept a wide range of skills and experiences into STEM program admissions decisions.
Utilization and successful completion of remediation and preparation increases among students who 1) are in need of remediation and/or 2) are interested in post-secondary STEM programs.
Post-secondary degree and non-degree STEM programs provide real-world and career-transferrable experiences that facilitate entry to STEM careers.
More women and Black and Latinx Philadelphia public high school graduates major and graduate in STEM fields.
