Inspiring Women in STEM Conference
November 15, 2016$250 - $350
More than 250 STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) professionals will gather for Delaware’s fourth annual Inspiring Women in STEM Conference. The event will feature inspirational speakers and interactive skill-building sessions focused on negotiation, work-life integration, the power of saying no, and aligning careers with personal motivations.
In addition to learning from, and being inspired by, the journeys of extraordinary women leaders, the attendees will have ample time to connect with their peers to expand their professional networks. An Exhibitor Showcase will highlight local organizations offering volunteer opportunities to mentor and encourage girls and young women to enter STEM fields.
“Women in scientific and engineering roles need more than technical skills for career success. We must demonstrate leadership and be effective communicators,” said Jennifer Kmiec, founder and co-chair of Inspiring Women in STEM. “The conference will offer interactive sessions to help develop these critical soft skills.”
