A prestigious forum for stimulating debate on bold solutions to advance graduate education, the Annual Board Meeting & Conference creates a platform to raise nationwide awareness of its mission, partners, and Fellows. This is the “must attend” event for advocates who want to transform how the United States educates and prepares engineering and science talent for advanced leadership careers, particularly among our nation’s native born, historically underrepresented ethnic groups. Like GEM, our Annual Conference offers innumerable opportunities for all of our partners.
The GEM Annual Conference provides a wealth of resources for everyone – Networking opportunities, career options and coaching, information on innovations and advancements in STEM, and the many benefits of being a part of the GEM Family.
The Annual Conference embodies all aspects of scientific excellence! You’ll find vetted and proven applied scientists and engineers, universities and faculty committed to cultural diversity in STEM, and employers who recognize the value of multi-culturalism and excellence in the workplace.
GEM exists because we believe there is an untapped resource of scientists and engineers from under-represented groups, that will serve as a springboard for scientific ingenuity. Contributing to GEM Annual Conference will create greater awareness of this untapped scientific resource, as well as highlight the importance of having a diverse workforce.
For more than four decades GEM has connected highly qualified minority graduate students to a national network of more than 150 top-rated universities, government research facilities, and leading multinational corporations. GEM has done this by providing effective programs that increase the retention and graduation rate of GEM Fellows.
GEM recognizes the value of diversity in the ever-expanding scientific industry and wants to expand this vision. We welcome you to join us as we continue to create a legacy of excellence in scientific impact!
We’ll see you at the Annual GEM Conference!
