SHPE Steps Inside the Global Arena
In last month’s CEO Corner , I talked about Teddy Roosevelt’s famous speech, “The Man in the Arena.” In it, Roosevelt argues that those with the courage to step inside the proverbial ring—of politics, business or society more broadly—are the true agents of change. The lesson for SHPE is clear: We cannot be discouraged or dissuaded by the naysayers of the world. Rather, we must get
in that arena—fight for what we believe in.

Two weeks ago, alongside SHPE National Board Chair Miguel Alemany, I had a chance to experience one of the biggest arenas of all: The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland....
SHPE @ The World Economic Forum
CEO Raquel Tamez and Board Chair Miguel Alemany were part of the first-ever Hispanic Delegation at The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. As a result, the We Are All Human Foundation , hosts of the Delegation, reported 150 signatories to the Hispanic Promise at Davos, a corporate pledge which calls to hire, promote, retain and celebrate U.S. Hispanics as employees, customers, and citizens.   Read the announcement

It's ScholarSHPE Season

Tearing Down Walls
CEO Raquel Tamez spoke with Harris Associates for a white paper titled Tearing Down Walls. The white paper details what SHPE is doing to meet the nation’s growing demand for tech talent. Deloitte and the National Association of Manufacturers project that the U.S. economy will create 3.5 million additional STEM jobs by 2025 — more than 2 million of which will go unfilled because of a shortage of qualified candidates.
