Who is able to attend: STEMconnector Members

On May 7, 2020, STEMconnector will once again convene all of our members for a day of insight, interaction, and reflection on achieving a diverse and sustainable STEM workforce. Centered around the release of STEMconnector’s upcoming report Roadmap to Results: A Framework for Selecting and Executing STEM Talent Solutions, the 2020 STEMconnector Summit will be an opportunity to learn from leaders across our network about innovative solutions to close the STEM talent gaps, especially in under represented populations.

The 2018 The State of STEM report defined not one but five critical gaps across the STEM talent ecosystem and 2019’s Input to Impact built on that research measuring progress in addressing those gaps. Releasing at the summit, Roadmap to Results: A Framework for Selecting and Executing STEM Talent Solutions, will examine scalable solutions to address STEM talent gaps and offer employers  guidance in choosing STEM talent solutions that will effectively meet their short- and long- term STEM talent pipeline goals. The report will offer frameworks for executing solutions for greater impact, particularly in reaching under represented and often overlooked talent pools.

Throughout the day we will hear from a cross-sector of leaders sharing their most promising strategies, programs, and practices for impact across the five STEM talent gaps. The Summit will provide opportunities for networking and engagement so that attendees walk away with actionable insights and next steps to take back to their organizations.


The event will kick off with a networking reception on May 6, sponsored by Walmart. Everyone attending the Summit is welcome at the reception.
