Idaho STEM Action Center Equity Statement
The Idaho STEM Action Center is committed to ensuring equitable access to STEM pathways for all Idaho’s students, educators, and communities. In our efforts, equity begins with recognizing disparities in Idaho: access and awareness gaps for students, inconsistencies in training and support resources for educators, and economic inequalities within Idaho's communities- and providing opportunities for Idahoans to realize their full potential by overcoming these barriers.
