On May 14, Career Communications Group, the company behind the Women of Color STEM Conference, released an open letter from the city of Detroit on the forum’s plans for this year. “We are determined to not let the importance of a diverse workforce suffer or go by the wayside as a result of the pandemic/virus,” said the signers of the letter.

As the situation surrounding Covid-19 evolved, the Women of Color STEM Conference took the step of creating a hybrid experience.
While this year’s meeting convenes in Detroit from Thursday, October 8 to Saturday, October 10, all events will be live-streamed to allow those who can’t physically be in Detroit to participate in what will be one of the most innovative events ever hosted.

“There is no question we are living through uncertain times, and that safety and sanitation throughout a destination, including hotel, dining, and entertainment venues, will be among the most important considerations for convention attendees going forward,” the letter said. “Rest assured, we are working closely with our hospitality partners and monitoring and implementing health and safety guidelines that meet and exceed CDC, state, and federal guidelines.”

The signers of the letter include Larry Alexander, president and CEO of the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau, Shonda Isaac, area general manager of the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, and Tyrone D. Taborn, chairman & CEO of Career Communications Group, Inc.
