Equity In STEM
Community Convening

October 6-8, 2019  |  Westin Cleveland Downtown  |  Cleveland, Ohio

What is the Equity in STEM Community Convening?

Advancing equity in STEM requires an intentional focus on creating authentic, sustainable, and inclusive environments while simultaneously cultivating a community that collaborates, shares and implements promising practices and tools shown to effect change. 

The ARC Network’s Equity in STEM Community Convening serves as a meeting space for researchers, practitioners, and change agents dedicated to creating equitable STEM workplaces. Attendees will have an opportunity to share new research findings and exchange resources; brainstorm strategies and collaborate in novel ways; and demonstrate effective programs and interventions for greater collective impact. Through this shared purpose we will have the interactive capacity to finally see #EquityinSTEM.
