Code the Dream Co-Executive Director Daisy Magnus-Aryitey took part in a panel discussion on the importance of STEM education and “investments and recruitment of Black creatives through early education pipelines” in Washington, DC, on September 21.
Magnus-Aryitey was invited to be a panelist by Congresswoman Valerie Foushee (D-NC) and the discussion was presented by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation.
“I’m really appreciative that Congresswoman Foushee is working on these important issues, and that she asked Code the Dream to be part of the discussion,” said Magnus-Aryitey. “The talk centered on increasing opportunities and access to the STEM field through innovative educational models, strategic partnerships, and internships.”
The panel also included representatives from from Shipt, Meta, Tennessee State University, and GSK.
“It was good to hear the ways that Shipt is building workforce pipelines through their community-centered internship programs,” Magnus-Aryitey said.
