What Diversity in STEM Means to You

This month’s theme: It’s Conference Season!

You’ve worked hard over the years to get to where you are today. Soon you will be reuniting with your familia, with your mentors, and with your colleagues in what will be a culmination of your relentless passion, dedication, and perseverance.

Now it’s your turn to be celebrated, appreciated and recognized.

You’ll be attending some of the largest meetings of our movement to diversify STEM and advance social change and educational equity. SACNAS and other conferences can empower you, transform you, and inspire you. They are a celebration of who you are and, in many ways, will mark the beginning of your journey.

We want to know why you are attending 2016 SACNAS: the National Diversity in STEM conference and/or other STEM conferences this fall. What are you most excited for?
