Who We Are
To compete in the rapidly changing and technologically advanced microelectronics sector, SEMI member companies rely on a highly skilled workforce. Companies must also maintain a pace of innovation faster than in the past.
The SEMI Foundation’s Global Workforce Development Initiative aims to connect potential employees to available jobs today, while also addressing long-term industry talent pipeline issues. Our programs are designed to reach students early in the educational process by connecting to elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools. But also those individuals advancing their education in college, university and graduate programs.
We are also partnering with the educators, seeking the veterans and helping the in-career individuals who need to re-skill and up-skill. We prioritize diversity and inclusion to increase the size of our overall talent pool and ensure the participation of women and other populations currently under-represented in our industry.
The mission of the SEMI Foundation is to ensure the sustained growth of the microelectronics industry by attracting, developing and retaining a well-trained and innovative workforce, through:
* educational programs, diversity initiatives and member engagement.
* science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professional skills development programs for middle school, high school and university students
* programs for educators, veterans and adults looking at re-skilling and up-skilling their talents.
