Many professionals in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) related career fields in Northwest Indiana will be retiring in the near future creating a large employment gap that would jeopardize the region’s economic strength. Ready NWI and the Works Council of Northwest Indiana have created the READY NWI Career Camp in order to raise awareness about STEM-related career fields and help students understand the steps they will need to take in order to reach those careers in the region.
