Women of Color STEM Conference

Since 1995, Women of Color magazine´s annual Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Conference has been the premier forum of choice for recognizing the significant contributions by women in STEM fields.

College Students

The 2019 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. 

 

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.
