Trained as a rocket scientist and ballerina, Ms. Jasmine L. Sadler, MBA lives her life on purpose as the CEO+Visionary of The STEAM Collaborative. After her 10 year career as an aerospace engineer at Fortune 100 companies, Jasmine L. Sadler, MBA (CEO+Visionary) left that career Not due to her skillset or passion for the job. Companies need diversity in STEAM jobs! With a background in quality, we are always focused on the root cause and ask Why? We are confident there are lots of other aerospace engineers out there, if only students were given access and education to form that identity.
The STEAM Collaborative ensures more diversity in our workforce. We provide Access and Real-world applications in STEAM, and show scholars career opportunities so that when they join the workforce, they will remain successfully engaged in their career.
When companies embrace diversity, it positively impacts equity, inclusion, and the bottom line.
