Through the excitement and activity around #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving meant to kickstart the generosity of the holiday season and highlight all the good in the world, we thought it most appropriate to announce our ongoing commitment to our longtime nonprofit partner, Teach for America (TFA), and to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.

Our future innovators are sitting in classrooms right now and with partners like Teach for America, we hope to get these students excited about STEM subjects and lead them toward a career in the technology industry. We have supported the work of TFA’s STEM recruitment for a number of years, but this year we have a more direct focus on recruiting diverse STEM educators. We have a common goal to reach those students who are underrepresented in the engineering profession – whether because of their geography, skin color, or income status. The best way to do that is through educators and role models who look like them, with similar backgrounds and experiences.
