About STEM is for Everyone
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. Our focus on diversity in STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and math) derives from the industry’s persistent need for qualified engineers, technical experts, and scientists in all corners of the world where power and energy insurance claims occur.
The mission of this organization is to help humankind and our industry thrive by promoting equal opportunity to education in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. A large percentage of the world’s population, in both first and third-world countries, does not have access to innovative technology, the internet, or STEM education. We are determined to increase the number of opportunities for underserved children and their families to access STEM education and help them envision a better, more empowered, future.
It’s a Problem for the Future
US Labor and Statistics Studies forecast job opportunities in computer and information technology are expected to grow by 15% from 2021 to 2031.
The median wage projection for STEM-related occupations is expected to be twice that of the projected average wage of all other occupations.
Over 94% of these jobs will go to the privileged, those who have been given access to STEM education as early as elementary school.
STEM is for Everyone is driven by the belief that if we can help prepare all of today’s children for tomorrow’s jobs, we can positively impact the future of our industry, break the cycles of poverty and help the human race in our fight to overcome our persistent struggle for equality.
Lack of Diversity
STEM is for Everyone, Inc was formed to address the lack of diversity within STEM education and the consequential lack of resources. This is a concern in developed and undeveloped countries.
- Less than 10% of all people in Ghana have access to innovative technology, including the use of computers and access to the internet.
- Fewer than half the schools in the US offer computer science classes (study performed by code.org)
- Less than 8% of computer architects in the US are women (US Census)

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. Founded in 2017 by the passionate and inspirational leader, Jonathan Kennedy Sowa, Inovtech is bringing STEM education into West Africa. They are doing incredible things in Ghana, but they have many obstacles to overcome, and they would greatly benefit from our support.
