Inventive partnerships help local STEM education take flight

The STEM workforce, expected to grow 11% by 2031 according to the US Department of Labor, is an area of continual advancement, vital for future careers.

Bristol Myers Squibb helps see these growth rates soar by partnering with local organizations such as The Museum of Flight and Life Science Washington.

Life Science Washington’s career development workshop supports graduate students through interactive experiences to help them transition from academia to a career in life sciences.

“We hold these workshops to give students insights into the STEM industry and to show them how valuable their education and expertise is. We want them to explore ways to apply what they’ve learned in something other than a traditional academic lab setting,” said Aylin Kim of Life Science Washington Institute.
