Supporting STEM and the Next Generation of Great Engineers
A collaboration between Getty Images, Washington STEM, and Your Life has us all kinds of inspired. The program is called RePicture STEM, and its goal is an important one: evolve the “stock” photography associated with STEM. Photos have power, and we agree that the next generation of STEM imagery should inspire youth and be inclusive. In addition to contributing material, the initiative made us rethink our internal library, reminding us that the photos we publish alongside our content help shape perceptions. The RePicture STEM initiative especially hit home for us because here in Washington, we host job shadow programs, are ACE mentors, speak at conferences and participate on panels, all in the name of supporting the evolution of STEM. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math help shape our world, and we’re excited by efforts that ensure STEM is encouraged and supported.
