STEMconnector(R), the one-stop shop for “who is doing what” in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and careers, released the publication during the Global STEM Talent Summit held at Gallup’s world headquarters.
“I am pleased and honored that Bayer’s long-standing focus on STEM is being recognized,” said Blake. “With the life science fields of health care and agriculture being at the forefront of Bayer’s competencies, we understand how important STEM education and careers are to our company’s success.”
Although Blake has held various leadership roles during his 30-plus years at Bayer, including positions in global strategic product marketing, business development, clinical planning, product development and sales management, he is particularly proud of his work to promote Making Science Make Sense(R), Bayer’s presidential award-winning, company-wide STEM education initiative that advances science literacy through hands-on, inquiry-based science learning. Not only has he been a staunch supporter of employee involvement in MSMS, he also has advocated for increased STEM-education awareness on a national level.
According to STEMconnector(R), leaders of major companies, such as Blake, who are involved in STEM fields are uniquely positioned to provide exemplary leadership on issues such as fostering a more inclusive STEM workforce and gender disparities in STEM.
