Team

Leadership and responsibility is distributed between statewide LASER Co-Directors and Washington STEM, with on-the-ground work carried out by regional LASER Alliance Directors with systemic support from the LASER Advisory.

  • LASER Statewide Co-Directors: design, facilitate, and implement activities that lead to progress toward LASER goals.
  • Regional Alliance Directors: implement, share, and refine best practices and tools that contribute to LASER goals.
    Washington STEM: provide capacity-building support, strategic guidance, and technical assistance to Co-Directors and Alliance Directors in service of LASER goals.
  • LASER Advisory: provide perspective, expertise, and advice on LASER’s unique contribution to STEM education in Washington and maintaining equity as a driver of the work.
