The Women of Color conference offers innovative and professional workshops,
top-notch programming and award ceremonies designed to engage, stimulate and educate all participants.


The best barometer of success is the recognition we receive from our superiors and our peers. Recognition at the Women of Color STEM Conference is one of a three-prong approach (training, recruitment, and recognition) to helping employers retain their women employees working in STEM fields. 

Three events throughout the conference showcase the extraordinary accomplishments of a diverse body of women who triumph over adversity, often very early in their journey. Their stories are an integral part of the conference and serve the vital roles of reaffirming, rejuvenating, and modeling the limitless possibilities for women who stay the course.

Recognition categories range from the competitive peer-reviewed awards to awards based on recommendations from employers. Employer recommended awards for outstanding achievement in the workplace are given at the lunch on Friday. The awards given on Saturday are judged and ranked by a panel of peers.
