Meet the New SHPE Logo
SHPE’s new logo positions our association as a powerful brand in the world of diversity in STEM. The four swirling shapes represent: the interconnectedness of our community; SHPE’s four core values of Familia, Service, Education and
Resilience; and the four elements of STEM. The logo has been designed to convey the energy and teamwork found within the SHPE community.
