Join us as we gather in beautiful Portland, Oregon for three days of presentations, panels and workshops designed to give attendees the tools and knowledge they need to strive and thrive in STEM and in life!

Black Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Manufacturing careers (STEM 2.0) rarely have an opportunity to see one another at work or network with one another. This October, Black Women in STEM 2.0 will strive to change that by hosting a summit that allows them to meet and make long lasting connections as they continue to thrive in their chosen professions.

The inaugural summit "Innovate to Accelerate โ€” Transforming STEM" will take place in Portland, Oregon from October 10 through 12, 2019 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel. A pre-reception sponsored by Wieden + Kennedy and Umpqua Bank will be held on Thursday, October 10th from 5:30 to 8:00 pm that will kick off the summit of engaging panels, lectures and workshops.

Keynote speaker:

Collette V. Smith

First Black Woman Coach of the National Football League - New York Jets

Guest Speakers:

Ivy McGregor, BeyGood & Parkland Entertainment Lamman Ruckert, Actor (OWN's Greenleaf)

The summit will also feature iPitch, a talent competition by iUrban Teen open to girls in grades 9 to 12 who are interested in becoming inventors. Participants will have the opportunity to pitch their concepts before a team of celebrity judges.
