As we begin the 2015-2016 NSBE year, the Public Policy Leadership Team would like to thank everyone who has participated in the Public Policy Special Interest Group (SIG) events last year. Moving forward, the Public Policy SIG will continue to support the NSBE mission and our new strategic goal of graduating 10,000 Black engineers annually by 2025.
Mission/Goals of Policy SIG
The Public Policy Special Interest Group (PolySIG) mission is to study, discuss, educate, and advise on public policy issues affecting Black engineers and scientists in academia, industry, government, and public communities. Our goal is to affect positive change as a Society in STEM-related policies in education, the workforce, and the world. To achieve this goal, PolySIG will focus on three specific areas in 2015-2016 - 1) STEM Education, 2) Tech & Innovation, and 3) Community Empowerment.
Four project team areas were formed to help Public Policy SIG advance its mission and goals. Project Team focus areas and goals are listed below:
