      2019 Future Faces of STEM Conference

      Future Faces of STEM: Maximizing Diversity in STEM by Cultivating Regional Support Networks Employment in STEM-related fields continues to grow faster than other employment sectors in the US. However, the National Science Foundation indicates that minorities currently only represent a small percentage ( The Second Annual Future Faces of STEM Conference will take place on Saturday, September 21, 2019. The goal of the convening is to encourage underrepresented college students to excel and advance in STEM fields. To accomplish this, the conference will provide a welcoming atmosphere that will focus on increasing their sense of belonging, validation and ultimately their engagement. The event will consist of icebreakers, motivational speakers, informative workshops (i.e. academic & professional preparation/development/advancement, overcoming personal challenges), a networking lunch, opportunities to meet with potential mentors and learn about STEM professions with local industries/municipalities.
