NATIONAL ENGINEERS WEEK FOUNDATION
VISION AND MISSION STATEMENT
The National Engineers Week Foundation is the global leader in attracting and cultivating the next generation of engineers and celebrating the engineering profession.
The mission of the National Engineers Week Foundation and its coalition is to sustain and grow a dynamic engineering profession by leveraging the common outreach interests of our corporate, professional society, academia, and government partners; expanding the pool of innovative engineers by seeding and nurturing a diverse future engineering workforce through K-12 STEM education outreach initiatives; and engaging the public to see, touch and embrace engineering through year-round innovative programming and celebration.
The Foundation, a formal coalition of more than 100 professional societies, major corporations and government agencies, is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers among young students and by promoting pre-college literacy in math and science. The Foundation provides a portfolio of year-round outreach programs, each with an underlying framework and materials. Programs are compelling yet simple to execute so that anyone and everyone can innovate with them.
