Inspiring Tomorrow's Innovators
Through investments in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) initiatives, TE helps today’s bright minds aspire toward brilliant futures.
Innovation, collaboration and creative problem-solving are core to TE’s culture. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) provide the foundation for our employees’ curiosity and creativity to solve customer problems in a competitive environment. TE supports education, professional development, and public service opportunities and partnerships that enrich today’s bright minds to develop tomorrow’s brilliant futures.
Our Approach to STEM
TE supports charitable giving and community engagement in the area of, among others, education and technology as a way to educate the public about the importance of innovation and the role that STEM plays.
Inclusion and Diversity
Inclusion and Diversity is only accomplished by sharing ideas across cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. TE strives to create the most innovative ideas by leveraging the curiosity of our employees to ask questions, confront challenges and find solutions. An inclusive and diverse workforce is essential for TE to be competitive in an increasingly diverse world. Recruiting and development opportunities must reflect a commitment to inclusion and diversity at every level of the organization.
"Bright Minds, Brilliant Futures" is a unifying theme for TE’s goal to build the workforce of the future. In our support of STEM, TE is committed to supporting education at all levels ranging from primary grades to college and vocational/technical specialization.
TE supports STEM initiatives across geographies, educational levels, and interests. The grassroots efforts led by our employees is a direct reflection of our company values, community spirit and commitment to advancing STEM. Additionally, TE, in conjunction with the TE Foundation, will continue to support FIRST Robotics and DiscoverE as global initiatives as we recognize the power and reach of these programs in advancing STEM and also as areas where TE employees have and continue to enthusiastically support efforts to increase interest in STEM areas of study for students of all ages.
For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology
TE and the TE Connecitivity Foundation are proud to support FIRST. Our involvement with FIRST started more than ten years ago and that commitment continues today through employee volunteerism, in-kind parts donations, and corporate giving.
TE's passion for FIRST is reflected in the many ways our employees give of their time and talent to support FIRST's focus: "...motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills."1
TE employees enthusiastically serve as coaches, advisors, judges, and regional board members, and each year donate thousands of collective hours to the organization.
We recognize the power of FIRST in creating an enthusiastic and supportive environment for the engineers and technology experts of tomorrow.
DiscoverE is committed to uniting, mobilizing and supporting the engineering and technology volunteer communities as they strive to increase STEM awareness in K-12 education and celebrate the value of engineering in education, careers, and society.
TE and the TE Connecitivity Foundation are proud to be a supporter and sponsor of DiscoverE. We share a common mission of growing the engineering and technologist talent pipeline through outreach, education, celebration, and volunteerism.
