The Society of Military Spouses in STEM (SMSS) was formed in 2016 by two military spouse engineers determined to overcome the challenges of maintaining a career with the military lifestyle. SMSS is a member-run organization focused on helping military spouses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields reach their full potential. SMSS was officially registered as a 501(c)(3) non profit on May 2016 and 150+ military spouses have already joined the SMSS Facebook group.
Support active and retired military spouses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields reach their full potential to create a positive impact by advocating for military spouses with technical interests; creating a network to connect military spouses in STEM with each other and with mentors and advocates to guide them through their academic and professional career; raising awareness of the challenges encountered by career-oriented military spouses and families; and increasing job, internship, education, and scholarship opportunities for military spouses in STEM fields.
Be an essential resource to create a world where military spouses in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields across all military branches are successful in their careers and are valued as leaders and contributors in their respective fields.
