How to become a STEM ambassador

How connected do you feel to your chosen #STEM profession?

Maybe you feel connected in some ways, but disconnected in others?

When was the last time you talked passionately about the work that you do, or the impact you are having, or the change you are making?

What is your responsibility as a #STEM professional? Does it go above and beyond just showing up at the office everyday?

At EoT, we often like to draw parallels with hockey (🇨🇦 🏒 🇨🇦) .

In hockey, even as young as 7 or 8 years old, kids are taught to dress nicely and act respectfully when they are playing an “away” game. Hockey teams often rally to support their local communities. They are told they are representing their team and, in many cases their town. They are acting as ambassadors of their team, their city, and even their sport.

The same holds true for #STEM professionals.

Maybe you use your unique training and skills to give back to your local community in some way.

Maybe you represent your organization at conferences.

Of course, our favorite way to become a STEM ambassador is to inspire the next generation!

The EIR program is full of #engineering ambassadors that are doing just that!

Being a #STEM ambassador can help you stand out, and give you a deeper connection with your profession.

What else? What are you doing to go from an employee to an ambassador!
