Cultivating SEA Change

It’s time for a SEA Change

We can only address collective global challenges if we disconnect from the structures of the past that are hobbling the ability to move forward together.
— Shirley Malcom, "Science, all inclusive"

We in the STEM community, particularly within business and industry, understand the benefits of diversity. We value global interactions among scientists, and the free flow of ideas across borders. We also know that biases, including those within colleges and universities, have marginalized many different groups and denied opportunities in STEM. How do we untie ourselves from these practices? How do we give ourselves access to the full range of talent in STEM?

We’re proud to introduce SEA Change.
