Conference Lead Partners
THE BEYA STEM CONFERENCE
The BEYA STEM Community of over 10,000 strong serves K-12 students, college students, corporate, government, and military professionals, and STEM employers with three (3) days of learning, networking, celebrating excellence, and showcasing career opportunities.
Career Communications Group (CCG) is at the forefront of redefining how we gather to network, learn, recognize, and recruit talent. This year’s BEYA STEM Conference will be available in-person and online. We call this the digital twin experience (DTX), which offers attendees options to blend the in-person and digital experience in ways unique to their needs. Whether you attend in-person or online, you will share the same experience. BEYA36 will continue to leverage several technologies to bring the digital twin of the BEYA experience to the STEM community on its platform and in-person at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC.
The in-person component of BEYA36 will comply with the Washington, DC COVID-19 Health Guidance for Masks and Cloth Face Covering Guidance for the General Public, which among other things require wearing a face mask during indoor events. Additionally, the Stars & Stripes Dinner and Mentoring Event will require proof of vaccination to attend.
To experience BEYA36 to its fullest, we strongly recommend that you bring a tablet or laptop for the education sessions. The seminar rooms and some public spaces in the Omni Shoreham will offer complimentary access to the internet.
