Previously known as the Young Scholars Conference, the Womxn in STEM (WiSTEM) Symposium name change better reflects our commitment to diversity. WiSTEM Symposiums have four main goals:
- Create space where intersecting identities and scientific research coexist.
- Equip womxn with the tools needed to navigate educational and occupational environments.
- Impart skills & knowledge to promote professional development and boost participants’ preparation to enter the job market.
- Encourage networking that can facilitate community mentorship & sponsorship.
