Celebrating Innovation in Education!

Disruptive Innovation | Industry Driven STEM-CTE



2019 Discover STEM-CTE Conference Series  is now being developed for Spring 2019

2018 National Student Leadership Program

Connecting Industry to Education brings immediate job driven relevance to both STEM and Career & Technical Education (CTE).  The Minority Technology Industry holds an important key to the success of our nation.

National Conference Series

Discover STEM-CTE


Fueled by our nation's focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and U.S. competitiveness, Career and Technical Education (CTE) is emerging as a systematic platform for education-industry collaboration and exploration.  Our Discover  STEM-CTE District event "roadshow" provides career options to members of those communities currently disenfranchised to our growing economy. 

Minority secondary and post-secondary students need to complete their education and find meaningful careers.  Industry and government are both needing highly skilled workers for opportunities now unfilled.   It is necessary for us to forge new and active partnerships to bridge this gap. 

2018 Planning Year

The Discover STEM-CTE National Conference Series brings together Tech company employers (including our fast growing minority technology owners and corporate diversity and HR executives),  industry subject matter experts, university faculty and government leaders with students, parents, teachers and school administrators all working to imagine a better future.

Registration Opens Summer 2018

The National Minority Technology Council’s Looking Forward Research & Development Program has developed a new look at the convergence between STEM and Career and Technical Education.  Our “STEM is in Everything” approach builds relevance and innovation to the career decision making process.

National Conference Series

Discover STEM-CTE


Our belief is industry works best in concert with government and inclusion is the only escape from the economic crisis found in the heart of our most urban centers across the US.

We are expecting stakeholder involvement and will facilitate inter-agency, inter-state participation to bring greater cost-effectiveness, economies of scale, access to external resources and greater political influence through strength in numbers.

The National Minority Technology Council will coordinate activities with multiple stakeholders across the country to ensure students have a chance to learn about 21st Century high-growth, high-demand job opportunities.

Our recommendation for public/private cooperative agreements to carry out this important work is based on the many federal, state, and local mandates to better educate our nation's populace on the importance of career exploration in STEM and CTE careers.

NMTC Community Program Highlights

Community STEM-CTE Charrette

A NMTC Community Charrette is an inclusive workshop, or series of workshops, in which various stakeholders and experts are brought together to address a particular regional or local issue or opportunity that has persisted and if resolved will result in an increase in community hope and trust, economic impact and high paying, high demand jobs.

Join the discussion around the future of education and learning in the 21st century.  STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and CTE (Career and Technical Education) converge with the ICT (Information, Communications & Technology) workforce.  Optimizing partnerships and collaboration requires strategic engagements and research. 

The National Minority Technology Council has developed a 10 year Design Based Research program ( to capture stakeholder input to assist in education program design and implementation.  Participants will be able to provide insight according to their subject matter expertise.

As an industry we represent thousands of business owners who are both practitioners and hiring managers for cyber security.    Cybersecurity is not a profession that one professional body can encompass and our role as a professional association is to provide leadership, ethics and good practices as an independent body.

Cybersecurity is emerging as an identifiable discipline, a meta-profession, that encompasses many sub-fields that form the modern computing ecosystem.  As an industry NMTC is working to inform both government and academia on policy, workforce and curricular frameworks and application areas like procurement and research.

The Center for Innovation and CTE Research provides research on skill based careers in the technology industry.

The Executive Chairman of the National Minority Technology Council serves on the NICE working committee on Industry.

The National Minority Technology Council (NMTC) has partnered with our stakeholder members to meet the workforce demand across the spectrum of application areas.  NMTC is conducting research to define new curriculum concentrations based on the specific demands identified by our member employers.

As a governing body our organizational focus is on building a supply of professional cybersecurity practitioners that adhere to a standard of professional competence, continuous learning and ethics.   We believe in an informed public and take extra care to reach out to those who are disenfranchised in order to ensure the cybersecurity profession is inclusive.  

Our federal government has established policies to secure the IT infrastructure at our federal agencies and the internet.  Below you will find a link to the Executive Order signed by President Trump May 11, 2017.

Filling the Workforce Shortage of
Qualified Cybersecurity

NMTC's Looking Forward Research & Development program office has established a Career and Technical Education research initiative called CENTERVATE (Center for Innovation and CTE Research). 

This applied research works to discover best methods and excellence in Middle School and High School Certification and skill building programs.  As an industry partner, NMTC is actively working with multiple school systems around the nation to ensure teachers and students are prepared for the 21st Century.
