The STEM Re-entry Task Force has been created to provide reentry internships for job seekers with technical degrees. It is also designed to produce structural change in the STEM sector by using the internship as a vehicle for engaging with returning technical job seekers.

Seven companies from SWE’s Corporate Partnership Council have stepped forward as the Task Force Founding Members: Booz Allen Hamilton, Caterpillar Inc., Cummins Inc., General Motors Company, IBM, Intel Corporation and Johnson Controls. Each Founding Member has committed to pilot a re-entry internship program during 2015-2016.

Email reentry@swe.org if you’re interested in becoming a member of the STEM Reentry Task Force.
