The Summit brings together companies struggling to fill their STEM job pipelines with female college students pursuing STEM degrees. The summits are designed to facilitate closing the gap between corporate needs for a STEM-enabled workforce and student questions about job prospects that align their passion with the needs of corporate America.

The inaugural Women In STEM Idea Exchange Summitat Bentley University on October 21st was a resounding success. Attendees, both students and corporations alike, shared what they have experienced and learned, gained insight into best practices for recruitment and retention, engaged with the next generation of STEM women and worked together to drive change. We look forward to meeting YOU at the next summit to inspire, engage, discuss and change the future of the STEM workforce. NEXT SUMMIT:
