member spotlight: bayer marks stem leadership milestone

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of its award-winning “Making Science Make Sense” program, Bayer and the National PTA announced plans to engage 100,000 students in hands-on STEM activities over the next three years. The goal is to inspire the next generation of STEM professionals.

Bayer is a Bay Area leader in STEM education. In 1992, the company launched Biotech Partners, training disadvantaged Berkeley youth for biotech jobs. In 2011, Bayer scaled up that model with a grant that established the Institute for STEM Education at Cal State East Bay.

“Building a diverse workforce is a business imperative for us, and we are pleased to work with so many dedicated partners in the Bay Area and nationally,” noted Joerg Heidrich, Bayer’s Sr. VP and a long-time BAC Executive Committee member.

Bayer, a global life science company with core competencies in health care and agriculture, is the Bay Area’s third largest biotech employer. Learn more about Bayer’s Making Science Make Sense program>>
