The 2016 Women of Color STEM Conference offers two tracks to help advance your career goals. Find career opportunities and role models, attend inspirational events, connect with mentors, and so much more. It’s all up to you! Come prepared to learn, grow, and connect. Opportunities begin the moment you arrive in Detroit.
Here’s what you’ll find at the conference:
DIEL College Program
We recommend that you arrive on Friday no later than 3:00 p.m. The earlier you arrive, the better your access to scheduled seminars and workshops. The DIEL program provides access to events on Friday (with the exception of the lunch). Although you have full access right away, we’ve developed a series of seminars specifically for pre-professionals that we encourage you to attend first. Some of these seminars are designed to prepare you for networking and interviewing, exploring skills that you can use right away at networking events and throughout the career fair.
CCG JobMatch Program
The CCG JobMatch Program is a 20-hour soft-skills training program providing certification to demonstrate that you have the skills employers need to ensure a successful transition to the workplace. Coursework covers topics that include interpersonal skills, teamwork and team building, handling multi-generational challenges, and business etiquette. This program can be completed through a combination of course participation either online or at our conferences. Visit the website for more information. You must arrive on Thursday evening to participate in the CCG JobMatch Program.
How to Participate
CCG has assigned a campus coordinator to several campuses to manage group participation. If we have not assigned a campus coordinator to your campus and there are more than four students in attendance, please contact us for assistance with attendance coordination.
