The dearth of minorities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) might contribute to the U.S. losing its edge when it comes to innovation, says the National Institutes of Health—but as a result, there are now a number of innovative STEM programs that target young students in diverse, disadvantaged communities. Attendees at this webinar discussed those programs, and strategies Action Coalition can use to strengthen their diversity action plans. The focus on STEM programs can help sustain and expand diversity efforts and lead to a nursing workforce that reflects the demographics of the nation.
