Exelon Foundation STEM
Innovation Leadership Academy Program
Exelon Foundation STEM Innovation Leadership Academy Program
In 2017, Exelon joined the United Nations Women’s HeForShe
campaign with a commitment to invest $3MM from the
Exelon Foundation in science, technology, engineering and math
(STEM) programs for young women in high school.

Launched by UN Women four years ago, HeForShe was created
to foster a movement with a systematic approach and
targeted platform where men can become change agents
for gender equality.

Recognizing the need to empower girls to pursue STEM
careers and address climate change issues, the Exelon Foundation
and United Nations Women HeForShe hosted our second annual
STEM Innovation Leadership Academy.

This free, week-long college like experience for teen girls ages 16-19
takes place in the Chicago, Philadelphia and Baltimore/District of
Columbia metropolitan region. This follows successful Academies
in Chicago and the D.C. area in 2018.

This year’s Academy focused heavily on the global climate
crisis, fostering a dialogue with our next generation of leaders and
introducing them to STEM careers that address climate
change issues.

Since its inception, 275 young women have gone through
the program.

In addition to the STEM Academy, the Exelon Foundation hosts
STEM Days in all four markets to continue to introduce students
to STEM jobs and careers.

Energizing Student Potential
Energizing Student
Potential
The Energizing Student Potential (ESP) program is a STEM initiative designed to
empower teachers in the classroom to help students explore energy related STEM
subjects, careers, and discover their own path.

Students in grades 5–8 are at a critical age, and a strong foundation must be
cemented through STEM, energy related fields, careers, emerging energy technologies
and climate change.

ESP provides a full suite of programs to engage teachers and students as it relates to
the energy industry. The program curriculum is focused on science of energy, climate
change, sources of energy, electricity generation and transmission, transportation,
efficiency and conservation, and careers in energy.
