STEM ADVISORY
Committee

Developed to address the growing role that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics now play in the nation’s economy, the Committee offers opportunities for top STEM leaders to exchange perspectives in order to better understand industry talent pipeline needs and attract a diverse population to their businesses.

The Committee is composed of top executives in leading STEM companies. It meets periodically to share major industry trends, inform NAF’s approach to STEM-enabling strategies in curriculum, work-based learning, advisory board development, college access, and professional development. Committee members also work to build employee engagement programs with a STEM focus and support NAF’s expansion and finances. The Committee has met directly with the NAF Board of Directors to coordinate program development and was instrumental in launching NAFTrack Certified Hiring, a promise made by a growing number of America’s top companies to give special consideration to applicants who, as high school graduates, earned NAFTrack Certification. The addition of devoted industry expertise to existing programs allows NAF to become the gold standard in STEM education.
