A Look Back at 2023

I’ve never been to any professional event that is so on-point, and still a really good time!
You’re engaging all these different parts of your brain — I leave with big takeaways but I also leave with a dozen little takeaways.

You never know what you might find, but even if you’re an old-timer, you’ll always learn something new here!
I’m encouraged that we really are making some positive changes to the STEM profession by the dialogue taking place here at the Symposium.
The networking possibilities at the Symposium are huge. We have many experts from the technical areas, academia, NGOs and industry. There are a lot of connections to make at the event!
