The Research Triangle Park


The 2nd Annual STEM Industry Summit will take place on Friday, February 23, 2018! This year’s theme is “Preparing Your Future Workforce: The Power of STEM Outreach” as participants will learn about the variety of ways companies and individuals can get involved in STEM outreach and the benefits and challenges that come along with those efforts. The Summit works to create an open space to foster collaboration between companies and professions whose goals are aligned but whose paths perhaps do not typically intersect.

In collaboration with Fidelity, Caterpillar, Inc., Citrix, EPA at RTP, EA Genomics, and Biogen.

Audience: STEM industry employees
