GE to Increase Diversity in Engineering

General Electric (GE) launched Next Engineers across three countries in four inaugural cities: Cincinnati, Ohio and Greenville, South Carolina in the U.S., along with Stafford, U.K. and Johannesburg, South Africa. Next Engineers represents a commitment of up to $100 million over ten years, dedicated to increasing the diversity of young people in engineering. Next Engineers is a global college-readiness program that will provide students ages 13 to 18 (grades eight to 12) with hands-on exposure to engineering concepts and careers and ultimately award scholarships to pursue engineering degrees. By 2030, the program aims to reach more than 85,000 students in approximately 25 cities globally.
