There are 14 days left until the end of the year and with the 2020 BEYA STEM Conference fast approaching, it’s time to get registered.

Now in its thirty-fourth year, the Black Engineer of the Year Awards or BEYA is a globally recognized conference that celebrates the achievements of people who are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

Each year, the BEYA STEM Conference brings professionals and students together for three days to share their experiences and career information. You can network with attendees while participating in seminars and workshops that explore every facet of STEM career paths. The goal of the BEYA Conference is to create connections between students, educators and STEM professionals while facilitating partnerships with individuals and their local STEM resources.
