Fifth Wave is a nonprofit that looks to provide equity and inclusion in education, and integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and certification in  Entrepreneurship. This enterprise-based Training and Development focuses on addressing trends that impact society, the economy, and everyday life. 

“The Fifth Wave of Computing will be fundamental in making the world we live in a better place but most importantly, this technology must be available to all in order to make it more efficient and more sustainable.”

~ Dr. Jeannice Fairrer

This epic knowledge transfer in STEM education and technological transformation is due to more access to data-driven insights, entrepreneurship, and the ability to apply new tools to improve our economic opportunities.
