Join us on Friday, October 25, 2019


Our Purpose Statement:

The purpose of the annual Women in STEM Conference at MSU Denver is to shed light on the challenges faced by those who identify as women and other underrepresented populations in STEM disciplines.  The conference aims to inspire, engage, and support these students by providing opportunities to develop tools and skills to successfully navigate a career in STEM. Conference themes and session topics have included intersectionality, advocacy, work-life balance, salary negotiation, conflict resolution, imposter syndrome, redefining failure, and many more. The conference is free of charge and open to all MSU Denver students, faculty, and staff as well as the broader community.

The Planning Committee for MSU Denver's Women in STEM conference are looking for departments interested in contributing to making this event a success. We would love to feature your department in our program, and to involve your students as much as possible!

Additionally, we are planning on having a number of student orgs table the event this year and providing them with some dedicated face time. This is a great opportunity for student attendees to become familiar with organizations they may not have known about and for orgs to increase their ranks!
