Engineering Tomorrow Receives Support From a Growing Number of Corporate Partners

Engineering Tomorrow, a public charity dedicated to inspiring high school students to pursue a path in engineering, today announced corporate donations from EnLink Midstream, LLC (“EnLink”), a company that develops and operates midstream energy infrastructure assets and is a first mover in carbon dioxide transportation, and Kraton Corporation (“Kraton”), a DL Chemical Group company and a leading global sustainable producer of specialty polymers and high-value biobased products. These contributions follow Engineering Tomorrow’s recent transition from a privately owned and operated foundation into a public charity with support from a growing list of corporate and academic partners.

Through lab events developed and led by experienced engineers at no cost to schools, Engineering Tomorrow encourages students to connect what they learn in the classroom with real-world applications and potential career paths. Contributions from EnLink, Kraton, and other organizations, support Engineering Tomorrow’s mission to create a larger, more diverse workforce to solve the global challenges of the future.

Engineering Tomorrow was founded in 2014 by Bill Woodburn, former CEO of GE Infrastructure and a Founding Partner of Global Infrastructure Partners, to educate students about engineering career paths and meet increasingly urgent talent gaps. Since then, it has scaled to deliver labs at over 4,100 schools, reaching more than 560,000 student participants across the country. Lab events highlight current topics in the field – from artificial intelligence to electric vehicles, aerospace, bioinformatics, pharmaceuticals, 3D printing, and many more.

“Corporations are increasingly looking to make a positive impact, and Engineering Tomorrow is one that can support their own talent pipeline while opening more doors to meaningful careers,” Woodburn said. “We’re thrilled by the enthusiasm we’ve seen from generous partners like EnLink Midstream and Kraton, who realize the immense value of Engineering Tomorrow’s labs and the opportunity to simultaneously improve outcomes for students and strengthen American industry.”

Walter Pinto, EnLink Midstream Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, said, “One of the cornerstones of EnLink’s success is teamwork, and we believe that diversity and critical thinking strengthens teams. The energy industry has a tremendous need for technical talent, especially in engineering. Industry leaders must engage with and develop future talent at the high school level to meet this demand and create an innovative and inclusive workforce. I am impressed with how Engineering Tomorrow takes on this responsibility and the achievements I’m seeing as a result. EnLink is proud to support this dynamic group.”

Vijay Mhetar, Chief Technology Officer of the DL Chemical Group said, “Drawing from my direct involvement, Engineering Tomorrow has developed an exceptionally efficient model aimed at fostering awareness for STEM opportunities and inspiring high school students to pursue higher education and careers in engineering disciplines. We are pleased to align with Engineering Tomorrow, advancing our corporate social responsibility and actively contributing to the cultivation of engineering talent, particularly within underrepresented communities.”
