Creating Connections 6.0 Conference
May 3 - 4, 2019
Creating Connections 6.0 is a diversity conference focused on attracting, engaging, and retaining women and underrepresented groups in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). This conference will include presentations and workshops surrounding issues of personal and professional development, networking, and inspiration. We aim to engage industry, the community, and students to increase the awareness and participation of women and other underrepresented groups in STEM fields of study and careers, and to better prep industries for sustainable solutions and developments so everyone can explore and participate in STEM.
