Dow announced an expanded partnership with Teach For All to fund Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) teacher recruitment, professional development and placement in underserved schools in Bahía Blanca, Argentina; Tokyo, Japan; Lagos, Nigeria; and Tarragona, Spain.

"Since we started our partnership in 2022, we have impacted nearly 200 teachers and more than 4,900 students in Argentina, Nigeria and Spain,” said Bob Plishka, Global Director of Strategic Corporate Partnerships and Dow Company Foundation president.

“This year, we are expanding the partnership to Japan to help reduce the gap in educational opportunities in countries where Dow has a significant presence. Actively tackling the STEM skills gap will present significant opportunities to uplift the community, create a positive impact and empower businesses across diverse industries."

Teach For All is a growing network of independent partner organizations and a global organization working to develop collective leadership to improve the quality of education for all children and break down the barriers standing in the way of their ability to learn and thrive. It has grown to include 61 network partners across six continents, with 13,000+ current teachers and 94,000+ alumni.

“We are grateful to Dow for their ongoing commitment and growing support of our network partners, expanding the partnership this year to include Japan,” said Pablo Millanes, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Teach For All. “Teach For Japan has set out to develop a first-of-its-kind teacher training program to inspire and equip university students and those who aspire to teach STEM subjects. This partnership will help address the educator shortage that Japan is currently facing due to an aging society.”

Dow’s continued support of Teach For All further demonstrates the Company’s commitment to creating positive social change, strengthening education and enhancing people's lives in our communities.
