BEST is a public-private partnership dedicated to building a stronger, more diverse U.S. workforce in science, engineering and technology by increasing the participation of under-represented groups. Its efforts reflect the growing realization that, historically, America has drawn upon a small segment of its population— and imported talent— to meet most of its needs for scientific and technological talent.
