STEM education

Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers are the fastest-growing jobs in the US and drive innovation. We also know that these careers are not equally accessible to all students and that women and people of color are underrepresented in science and technology careers. Diverse businesses are more successful and more innovative, and GSK is committed to making STEM education more equitable and increasing the number of underrepresented people in STEM careers through our philanthropic investments.


Through our STEM investments, we aim to equitably increase children’s value of and confidence in doing science and pursuing STEM careers. Through our local and national investments, we intentionally focus on diverse and under-served populations and aim to increase students’ access to exciting STEM education that is culturally relevant, connected to real careers and builds science identity. We also collaborate with community partners to improve pathways for diverse students to succeed in school and pursue STEM careers.

To make STEM equitable, we must work together in earnest to change our systems and institutions. Because it is up to us to clear the path for the next generation of innovators who can help us build a better future.”
