Inaugural Women in STEM Symposium
New to NASEC this year is the inaugural Women in STEM symposium. This event, an exploration of the challenges faced by women in STEM and a celebration of their accomplishments, will take place prior to the start of the rest of the conference in the afternoon of Saturday, 2 November. Select schools are invited to nominate up to three undergraduate female students and their faculty mentors to attend. Nominees for this pre-NASEC symposium must be enrolled in an ROTC program, majoring in a STEM discipline, and have demonstrated the potential to become future leaders within science, engineering and technology.
