Audio electronics retailer Shure has announced a new “STEM for STEM” program aimed at promoting the next generation of technology experts through support of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) initiatives.
The program, according to Shure, will provide donations to various STEM- and STEAM-based organizations, based on each Stem Ecosystem product sold by Shure.
“When customers outfit or upgrade their meeting rooms with Stem Ecosystem products, they are automatically supporting the next generation of tech pros,” said Jim Schanz, VP Global Integrated Systems Sales, Shure.
Shure has also noted the company will be looking at supporting STEM programs who make diversity a priority. This news coincides with the announcement date occurring as part of Women’s History Month and Gender Equity Month.
In a press release on the matter, the company notes a longstanding legacy of women in leadership, from the current President and CEO Chris Schyvinck, to former Chair member, Rose L. Shure.

For more than 60 years, the company notes Mrs. Shure served as an inspiration for all associates and continues to serve as one even to this day. A role model for Shure’s Core Values and basic principles, Mrs. Shure was succeeded in 2016 by Schyvinck following her passing.
Schyvinck herself began her career at Shure more than 30 years ago as a quality control engineer during a time when few engineers were present within the industry.
According to Shure, the company would not be where it is today were it not for the leadership of Schyvinck and Shure.
“Providing resources for young adults, especially young women and people of color, to learn more about science and technology is a passion for me,” said Schyvinck. “So many STEM organizations are doing a great job of inspiring and developing our next generation of leaders and we are proud to support this important cause.”
