Join DTCC in Supporting STEM Education

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) strives to give back to the communities where its employees live and work. Part of DTCC’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) focus includes investing in tomorrow’s workforce by supporting STEM education programs for young people, particularly those from underserved populations, helping students acquire the communications and technical skills that businesses need and even providing work opportunities for promising candidates ready to enter the workforce.

Cycle for STEM for NYU’s Center for K12 STEM Education

DTCC has been fundraising for NYU’s Center for K12 STEM Education since 2016 through an annual Cycle for STEM event organized by DTCC employees, which has raised just under $100,000. For 2019, DTCC’s fundraising goal is $100,000.

Building STEM Talent for the Workforce of Tomorrow

DTCC recently hosted a live, video roundtable discussion that explored new data and perspectives on the STEM talent gap as a serious potential risk to the future vitality and growth of the financial services industry. DTCC experts shared thoughts on how business leaders can develop a workforce capable of leveraging new technologies and support talent development from early education through the career lifespan.

Watch the roundtable discussion with experts from DTCC, BNY Mellon, the Center for K12 STEM Education at NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering and the Center for Talent Innovation.

To help us surpass our fundraising goal, we invite you to join us for a campaign kickoff reception on Wednesday, January 30, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. EDT at DTCC’s Jersey City office, 570 Washington Blvd. Please RSVP for the event and access this google form to pledge your support.

The funds raised will support NYU’s ARISE program for New York City students who are interested in STEM, as part of the K12 STEM education program at NYU. This is a seven-week, five days-a-week program that includes workshops, seminars, NYU labs, and mentoring for students from historically underrepresented groups in STEM.
