Stafford, Va., Oct. 20, 2020 – Trewon Technologies LLC (Trewon), a professional service firm offering integrated IT and research and evaluation solutions for diverse federal agencies, is proud to announce one of its newest partnerships with NSFs Inclusion across the Nation of Communities of Learners of Underrepresented Discoverers in Engineering and Science (NSF INCLUDES), a comprehensive national initiative to enhance U.S. leadership in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discoveries and innovations focused on NSF’s commitment to diversity, inclusion, and broadening participation in these fields.
Trewon is supporting the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) to provide analytic and evaluative support services for the NSF INCLUDES initiative, which seeks to broaden the participation of women and minorities in STEM education through the workforce. More specifically, Trewon is addressing EHR’s evidence-building and evaluation needs by extending on past work to elicit systematic answers to questions regarding the activities and outcomes of NSF INCLUDES projects.
Bijal Shah, Ph.D., president of Trewon Technologies, said, “Trewon’s engagement with NSF INCLUDES is designed to achieve strategic outcomes that support the NSF vision of a nation where everyone has opportunities for success in STEM. In collaboration with NSF INCLUDES, we aim to strengthen NSF’s evaluation needs to further help them create educational and career opportunities for underrepresented communities.”
