The purpose of the conference is to motivate, inspire and engage participants to achieve their highest goals in pursuing education and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. Conference programming is specifically tailored to support undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and career professionals at each transition stage of their career as they move toward positions of science leadership.
