Region’s Leading Female STEM Professionals Gather in Delaware October 19th
Top business, government and nonprofit female STEM leaders and professionals will convene for the 2023 Inspiring Women in STEM Conference (IWSTEM) on October 19 at the University of Delaware’s Clayton Hall in Newark.
As the premier professional development and networking program designed to encourage, support, and inspire women in all aspects of STEM in their professional lives, IWSTEM serves industrial and government scientists and engineers, academic researchers, educators, college students, and entrepreneurs. This fall’s event marks the 10th anniversary of the Delaware BioScience Association hosting the annual IWSTEM conference.
Conference speakers include US Under Secretary of Commerce and Director of the US Patent and Trademark Office Kathi Vidal, Delaware Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long and Chemours Chief Sustainability Officer Amber Wellman.
IWSTEM’s daylong professional development program features keynote talks and fireside chats, lively interactive panel discussions and workshops, mentoring sessions and opportunities for peer networking. New to this year’s conference is a digital app that will enable participants to communicate directly with other attendees and facilitate networking.
In response to significant community interest, this year Delaware Bio has expanded IWSTEM to include smaller quarterly programs that combine networking with discussions of important professional development topics. Those programs continue to grow in popularity, with events in March and June covering topics including networking with a purpose and the confidence gap.
All individuals with an interest in building their STEM careers are welcome to attend. Conference participants will include industry executives, mid and early-career business people, scientists and academics, entrepreneurs, investors and students.
