IMSA Girls IN2 STEM Conference Registration for Panelist, Presenters and Exhibitors
Welcome to the IMSA STEM Pathways Program - Girls IN2 STEM Conference Registration Page.
In honor of National Mentor Month, Girls IN2 STEM's peer-to-peer education and career mentoring program will host their first annual conference to empower and educate students to pursue and succeed in STEM careers.
According to Million Women Mentors, a partnering national organization, research shows that individuals with mentors have improved academic, social, and economic prospects. For women in STEM fields, this becomes increasingly important as young women look to role models to help them gain their confidence and increase their opportunities, particularly in science, technology, engineering, and math careers where women remain grossly underrepresented.
Our conference is inclusive and accessible to allwho wish to attend. We welcome students, parents/guardians, faculty/staff, community members, associations and organizations, business partners and STEM career seekers. Lunch is provided for all registered guests and attendees.
Our event is sponsored by a generous program grant from PPG and ComEd.
