By bringing together a national community of policy makers, school leaders, industry partners, and philanthropists, we will share promising practices and raise awareness for cross-sector collaboration as an essential approach to meaningful education reform. 

During the Symposium, US2020, together with Co-Founding Sponsors Chevron and Tata Consultancy Services, will introduce the 2017 STEM Mentoring Award recipients -- organizations that will receive distinction across a set of five different categories.
