Featuring the Blavatnik Regional Awards for Young Scientists

21st century jobs in all industries require STEM skills at an unprecedented level.  This fall, the Academy is partnering with the World Bank and the United Nations to launch a groundbreaking global STEM skilling initiative, beginning with a workshop to identify and prioritize high-impact areas and opportunities.  At this year’s Gala, we will recognize the change agents working to close the skills gap and honor champions of STEM in workforce development, from corporate CEOs to celebrities. We invite you to join us to showcase your support for a STEM-powered workforce.

The evening event will include a cocktail reception, seated dinner, and after-party with winners and finalists of the Blavatnik Awards.
