Vision to Transform and Enhance the U.S. STEMM Ecosystem

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OTSP) recently released its vision for science and technology investments in the United States. Five action areas were developed, including ensuring students, teachers, workers, communities, and others have adequate support to participate in and contribute to STEMM throughout their lifetimes; addressing the STEMM teacher shortage; closing the funding gap; supporting researchers and communities who have been historically excluded from access; addressing bias, discrimination, and harassment experienced in the classroom, laboratory, and workplace; and promoting accountability across the science and technology ecosystem.
