About STEM is for Everyone

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are the way of the future, yet a large percentage of the world’s population does not have access to innovative technology, the internet, or STEM education.  STEM is for Everyone is a power and energy insurance claims industry initiative that is focused on increasing and diversifying technical resources (engineers and scientists) around the world.

STEM is for Everyone’s annual event will be held in London on the evening of 23rd February 2023.  This year, we will be supporting the Inovtech STEM Center in Ghana.  Inovtech STEM Center is doing wonderful things in Ghana and has ambitious goals of expansion into various parts of West Africa, but they need our support.

This Years Event Will Benefit Inovtech in Ghana.

Inovtech and Jonathan Kennedy-Sowah face many challenges in the course of disrupting the cycles of poverty in Ghana, including: 

  • Limited access to facilities where students can practice and study
  • Limited access to tools (computers, books, hardware)
  • Limited access to STEM educators
  • A shortage of visionaries who can help the people in poverty see beyond the perceived limitations
  • Several less-tangible inhibitors exist ranging from general lack of privilege to underlying cultural challenges such as unwillingness to change curriculum within both public and private schools
