Nurturing tomorrow’s innovators today.
Education has always been a priority at Siemens in the U.S. and across the globe, especially in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The Siemens Caring Hands Foundation is a not-for-profit organization established to receive, manage and allocate funds for charitable activities. Siemens Caring Hands encourages volunteerism by providing organizational assistance and resources for Siemens employees to help them make a difference in their local communities.
The Siemens Foundation provides more than $7 million annually in support of STEM educational initiatives in the U.S. Its signature programs, the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology and Siemens Awards for Advanced Placement, reward exceptional achievement in science, math and technology.
The Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge encourages K-12 students to develop innovative green solutions for environmental issues. In addition, the Siemens STEM Academy is an online community designed exclusively to foster achievement in STEM fields through the collaboration of STEM educators and sharing of "best practices". Siemens works to ensure that its activities, processes and products adhere to the strictest standards of environmental safety and are compatible with sustainable development goals.
Innovating marketing and technology alliances.
The Siemens-Disney Alliance brings together the world’s leading family entertainment company and a premier global technology and infrastructure company in a 12-year strategic technology and marketing alliance that was announced in November 2005. While Walt Disney Parks and Resorts used a range of Siemens products and technologies before the alliance agreement, the sponsorship program expanded the relationship and paved the way for the two companies to broaden their technical collaborations across several platforms--including theme parks, resorts, cruise ships and other lines of business. As part of the alliance, Siemens sponsors attractions at Walt Disney World Resort (FL), Spaceship Earth and the adjoining Project Tomorrow post show. Other assets sponsored by Siemens include IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth (Epcot), Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (FL), a technology showcase at Innoventions (CA), Disney’s Electrical Parade (CA) and It’s a Small World (CA). The alliance sponsorship also extends to New York City with the Siemens sponsorship of the ABC Studio digital sign, located in the heart of Times Square.
