SC Johnson Supports STEM Funding, Literacy and Tomorrow's Innovators
for a Brighter Future
addition, we have long been committed to future generations and finding ways to
help them reach their goals and foster a love of learning. Here are some ways
• SC Johnson STEM Scholars Pathway: Earlier
this year, we announced a donation of $5.5 million to Gateway Technical College
to create the SC Johnson STEM Scholar Pathway program. This program offers the
opportunity to obtain a four-year degree in a STEM- related career field to
those with limited means, women, and people of color, who have historically
been under-represented in STEM industries.
• Partnering with Sesame Workshop: We
teamed up with Sesame Workshop to help create new tools and resources for young
children and caregivers worldwide to promote healthy and environmentally
sustainable practices at home. Over the next two years, Sesame Workshop will
create a robust collection of global educational resources centered around the
pillars of health, sustainability, and early education building blocks.
of the Books: We’ve supported the Racine Public
Library’s Battle of the Books program for 20 years to provide thousands of
books to local fourth- and fifth-grade students and encourage a love of reading
through friendly competition.
Conference: For six years, we’ve sponsored the
Southeastern Wisconsin Girls Engineering, Math and Science (GEMS) Conference,
to help reach middle school aged female students and engage them in hands-on
experiences and learning sessions designed to encourage engagement and pursuit
of courses and careers in science and technology, and ultimately inspire young
girls to reach their potential.
