Greater Milwaukee STEM Ecosystem

Milwaukee, WI


Our Purpose

  • Ensure equitable opportunities are sustained, shared and implemented for all students to access high quality STEM opportunities.
  • Track, monitor and report on progress in ensuring all students have the opportunity to understand what a future in STEM could look like.
  • Create a unified effort ecosystem wide that enables STEM partners to share best practices and align resources to ensure efforts in K-12 STEM pipeline development are effective and reflect the community as a whole.

About Our Community

The Greater Milwaukee region represents a community deep in experiences and supports to advance STEM opportunities. GM-STEM unifies STEM outreach efforts across industry, K-12, higher education, and community partners throughout the seven county Greater Milwaukee region. Some highlights from our community include:

A community focus on equity in education, especially STEM pathways, in partnership with non-profit organizations such as Greater Milwaukee Committee, Milwaukee Succeeds, All-In Milwaukee. Hispanic Professionals of Greater MKE, MMAC Hispanic Collaborative, Milwaukee Urban League, Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, City Forward Collective, NCWIT-WI, and WIT-MKE.

Launch Committee
The below contacts led the application efforts to establish GM-STEM and are coordinating and advising on efforts with TIES to formally launch the ecosystem. As goals and structure for the ecosystem are established via public design sessions, a formal structure and leadership team will emerge to coordinate efforts regionally.
