The SThree Foundation was established in 2016 to develop a diverse STEM talent pipeline.
We know the STEM industries we serve provide sustainable, impactful and rewarding careers however research shows there is a shortfall in STEM workers. We also know that unemployment across the world is a challenge and contributes to social, education and health inequalities. It is our aim through the SThree Foundation to bridge this gap; bringing career opportunities in STEM to everyone.
The SThree Foundation funds STEM projects nominated by our people. We fund projects that engage, excite and inspire people from diverse backgrounds to get involved in STEM.
The projects we support take place across the world. Examples of what we have funded include:
In addition the SThree Foundation match funds the fundraising efforts of our people when they raise money for the African Science Academy.
In the two years since launching the SThree Foundation we have engaged over 400 people from diverse backgrounds in STEM, through STEM career talks at schools and funding impactful projects.
“We need to act now to ensure we identify the talent of tomorrow. We have a responsibility to ensure that we make career opportunities available to diverse talent, not only for innovation and sustainable growth but to help transform lives.”
Gary Elden OBE, SThree CEO.
