Annual Conference

About The Event

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.
