The Latino STEM Alliance (LSA) was born out of the vision of a group of STEM professionals who witnessed the lack of diversity in the tech sector and the challenge that corporations faced with filling highly qualified positions. These professionals seized on an opportunity to broaden the career perspectives of under-served youth by developing STEM programs in marginalized communities.
