Building the Workforce of Tomorrow
Our commitment to Building the Workforce of Tomorrow is based on the belief that the economic and societal value of an employed, productive and diverse workforce is fundamental to the health of each individual, community, and to the world. In addition, this trained workforce is essential for producing the talent necessary to solve major world challenges.
We are committed to advancing STEM fields -- particularly chemistry, engineering, and manufacturing -- by getting students excited about STEM subjects, supporting our educators, and creating career advancement pathways at all areas within the education and workforce pipeline.
This work is driven by our Dow STEM Ambassadors, trained Dow employee volunteers, who lend their passion and expertise to engaging students and supporting teachers.
Our efforts involve two focus areas: Classroom to Career and Educator Empowerment.
Classroom to Career
Ignite interest and enhance preparedness for students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields through employee engagement and strategic partnerships. Support successful career pathways, from university partnerships to skilled trades programs to leadership development.
