Our founding business partner, Procter
& Gamble (P&G), is seeking your quick input on who you see as “best in
class” companies/enterprises driving STEM at a local, regional, and national
Uday Sheth from P&G has enlisted
a small “landscape” study with one of P&G’s external vendors to look at
this question, to help benchmark P&G’s own efforts in STEM. He is trying to get a sense of his peer
companies (consumer goods) as well as broader industries like food,
automotive, petrochemical, “tech”, etc. He’s interested in strategies, action plans,
external communications, spending, etc. in the area of improving STEM
engagement & proficiency amongst kids and young adults.
Uday wants to make sure we’re
including “the best” in this landscape, which is where we need your
help. He’s created a list of companies to be studied (GE, Intel,
Dow, etc.) but would love to hear who you think is best so we make sure to
include them. Please let him know why you think they’re
strong, and if you have any specific data/evidence or contact names, that would
be helpful. His contact information is
If you could get back to Uday in the
next week or two we’d appreciate it. We look forward to hearing from
you, and meanwhile wish you all a happy holiday season.
Thank you in advance,

Hello Mary and Uday:
Congratulations on gaining support from P & G, this is really important and P & G has been a fantastic partner nationally on many important initiatives.
Our corporate partner, Praxair, has been fantastic as we have developed our ecosystem. They also partner with the WNY STEM ecosystem that is a fantastic complement to ISEP.
Dr. Larry Megan has been instrumental at aligning Praxair’s interests with ISEP and WNY STEM. I am sure he would be willing to talk with Uday to let him know how Praxair, a partner in ISEP since 2009, has worked with the ecosystem participants across Western New York.
