The 40th Anniversary Annual Conference and Gala

GEM-40thAnnually GEM convenes its Annual Conference and Board Meeting in various cities throughout the country.

This year is special, not just because it will be hosted on South Beach, but also because GEM is celebrating 40 years of advocating for talented, underrepresented minorities who are earning graduate degrees in engineering and applied science.

The annual conference is the highlight of each year bringing America’s thought leaders, academia and industry together to sharpen skills, collaborate and celebrate the achievements of GEM Fellows and GEM Alumni. Or simply put by GEM’s motto, “Linking Exceptional Talent to Extraordinary Careers.”

The Gala celebrates the amazing accomplishments of GEM Fellows, GEM Alumni and our partners. From leading corporate executives to the next technical leaders, the Gala celebrates academic and professional advancement which will positively impact diversity and inclusion in engineering and technical industries. The gala will be a “who’s who” of STEM leaders and awardees.
