-- Career Communications Group (CCG) will host the 21st
Women of Color STEM Conference October 13-15 in Detroit, Michigan. This year's conference theme is STEM is a Girl Thing, a proclamation that women in all areas of their careers are excelling in the industry. Women of Color offers a powerful line-up of workshops, networking opportunities, and signature events including, Technology Recognition Lunch, Breakfast with Leaders and Legends, and Women of Color Awards Gala. Registration opens July 15, 2016.
Since its 1996 origin in the nation's capital, the conference has been paving the way for the advancement of women in traditionally underrepresented science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. The conference is attended by industry professionals, recruiters, speakers, and trainers, along with rising seniors and students seeking encouragement and guidance. Seminar topics focus on technical innovation, career training, professional development, managerial leadership, and diversity and inclusion.
"There is a deficit of skilled STEM workers in the U.S. to support our economy, and minorities and women continue to be significantly underrepresented in those high-value, high-paying jobs," explained Tyrone Taborn, CEO of Career Communications Group. "The national movement to reinvigorate STEM education efforts has just begun to build momentum. We're extremely proud to be pioneers with a rich decades-long history and distinguished reputation for promoting and celebrating multiculturalism in STEM fields."
Women of Color STEM conference award recognition provides employers with an unique opportunity to recognize top talent and achievements, improve retention, and solidify their commitment to diversity in the workplace.
