East Bay STEM Network
Since 2011, the Institute has led the East Bay STEM Network, formerly Gateways, to serve as a “hub organization” for systemic STEM education reform. Our network regularly convenes key stakeholders—many of whom had not previously worked together— to forge a regional STEM education effort that Congresswoman Barbara Lee has lauded as one of the most effective in the nation.
Employing a Collective approach, we build STEM partnerships across education, business, and industry sectors. These, Circles of Collective Impact, illustrate the highly collaborative and intersectional nature of our work and the direct need for partners across communities to work together for equitable student success.
