UST Global Connections with Xerox and Rochester, NY (Interview Podcast)

NPR show: Innovation Trail
Alexandria Kelly is one of the first graduates of the UST Global Step it Up Program in Rochester, New York. The Rochester program co-sponsored by the Rochester STEM training program and Xerox helps to improve minority and women presence in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Recently, Alexandria and major players from UST Global were featured on Innovation Friday on the local Rochester National Public Radio (NPR) affiliate WXXI discussing the program and related STEM topics on the show Innovation Friday

The goal of the Step it Up Program is to increase visibility of minorities and women in STEM. Currently in the US 12% of the graduates in STEM are women and minorities. Of the 12% graduate pool, only 2% get jobs in their respective STEM degree field.

The panel participants on the program included:
  • Alexandria Kelley – past graduate of the Rochester STEM training Program
  • Dan Weber is Vice President Technology for UST Global – mentored Alexandria
  • BG Moore - Chief of Staff UST Global
