The world is a different place than it was when we began planning our 2020 STEMconnector Summit back in 2019. But despite the challenges before us ranging from health and safety to economic crisis, workforce development, and revisions to the way many companies think about diversity and inclusion, one thing remains clear: it is by working together that we can have greater impact than when we go it alone. And while we may be socially (and professionally) distant, those collaborations across the country and world are what continue to inspire hope for the future and renewed commitments to make a difference. And in the spirit of this collaboration and inspiration, STEMconnector will bring our annual summit right to you.
On September 18, from 10 AM to 2 PM STEMconnector will host a virtual Summit, centered around how companies respond in crisis and how we are in some ways better positioned than ever to invest in overlooked talent from diverse pools. During the 4-hour virtual conference, we will dive in to STEMconnector’s soon-to-be released research on upskilling and reskilling, and hear a panel of leaders discuss their efforts in this area. We will hear presentations from companies like 3M and TCS on how they have responded and continue to inspire. And we will hear from Chief D&I officers on how they have built cultures of inclusion, and invest in diverse talent, not only in the past, but in plans moving forward.
Our hope is that attendees will walk away from the event with a renewed understanding of their own pathways forward, remembering that although we are in a time of crisis, we also have the ability to break barriers, and affect lasting change in ways we never thought possible.
Please join us on September 18. We are honored to work alongside you, and look forward to a day of connection and galvanization with the most dedicated, talented, and inspirational STEM leader network there is.
