Innovation, Iteration & Inclusion: Tenets for Samsung Solve for Tomorrow’s Success
Ann Woo, Senior Director of Corporate Citizenship at Samsung Electronics America, recently led a session at the virtual 2021 International Corporate Citizenship Conference on how Samsung is working to foster inclusivity in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education through our Samsung Solve for Tomorrow program. The annual event, hosted by the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, connects leading corporate social responsibility professionals and experts from around the world for three days of insights, information, and sharing.
Samsung Solve for Tomorrow is a national 6th-12th grade public school classroom competition that’s fueling the imagination of young minds to develop bold, empathetic solutions for pressing community challenges. Ann shared key lessons learned from the STEM-based citizenship program’s eleven-year journey, how the Solve for Tomorrow experience was reimagined during COVID-19, and the ways in which the program is helping students in underserved and rural communities become seeds of change.
