Community Partners

Our mission is necessary, but ambitious. SHPE strives to be as capable and comprehensive as possible, but we simply cannot do this alone. Our community partners are experts in their own right, and collaborating with them makes us a stronger, more effective organization. We are grateful to have their support in helping get more Hispanics in STEM!


Since 1968, UnidosUS has served the Hispanic community through their research, policy analysis, and state and national advocacy efforts, as well as in their program work in communities nationwide and through their network of over 300 affiliates across the country.


ASEE envisions widespread, inclusive, and equitable environments in engineering, academia, and industry that embrace individual differences and leverage diversity for a better engineered tomorrow. The ASEE Commission on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is comprised of Standing Members, Division and Section Delegates, and Friends.

Women of Color in Engineering Collaborative (WCEC)

A collaborative effort of over 20 leading organizations dedicated to providing the resources organizations need to create a supportive, encouraging, and inclusive environment for Women of Color in engineering.

The vision of the Women of Color in Engineering Collaborative is for women of color to feel a sense of belonging and to be fully included in engineering; for them to thrive and be valued as their authentic selves, empowering them to fully use their strengths to lead in positions of influence, innovate in their field, mentor and champion others.

50K Coalition

The 50K Coalition is a unique collaborative of more than 40 organizations focused on a bold national goal: to produce 50,000 diverse engineering graduates annually by 2025. The coalition was formed by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), the nation’s preeminent diversity engineering organizations, which collectively serve more than 85,000 pre-collegiate, collegiate and professional members. The expertise and more than 188 years of collective experience of the coalition’s founding organizations perfectly position them to tackle the coalition’s goal.


The Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility (HACR) was founded in 1986 and is the nation’s leading corporate advocacy organization, representing 14 national Hispanic organizations in the United States and Puerto Rico.

STEM Education Coalition

The STEM Education Coalition’s mission is to raise awareness amongst policymakers at every level about the critical role that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education plays in enabling the U.S. to remain the economic and technological leader of the global marketplace of the 21st century. The Coalition believes that our nation must improve the way our students learn STEM and that the business, education, and STEM communities must work together to achieve this goal.
