The BEYA STEM Conference is an event hosted by Career Communications Group, Inc.’s US Black Engineer magazine, the Council of Engineering Deans of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Lockheed Martin Corporation.

The upcoming conference will take place in Baltimore, after over a decade since it was last held there. The event moved to the nation’s capital after hosting a landmark anniversary in Philadelphia, PA.

The 2024 conference will take place at a time when experts are calling on governments and businesses to help shape societies that will benefit from the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

BEYA Conference Chairman and Career Communications Group CEO Tyrone D. Taborn expressed his excitement about bringing the conference back home, citing Baltimore‘s African-American heritage and top-tier institutions that mold the minds of Black students studying science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

Since 1986, over 10,000 men and women have been nominated for the Black Engineer of the Year Awards (BEYA).

The conference was first held in Baltimore, Maryland in 1987 and has since then exposed 100,000 middle, high school, and college students to professional role models in STEM.

Over 900 people in STEM careers have received category awards, and 38 have been selected as Black Engineer of the Year.

The BEYA Conference has been held in different cities throughout the years, including Philadelphia and Washington D.C. It returned to Philadelphia in 2016 to mark 30 years of bringing together thousands of scientists, engineers, educators, and corporate leaders to ensure that the African-American community plays a leading role in our nation’s STEM competitiveness.

Career Communications Group (CCG) produces the BEYA STEM Conference. They are a leader in diversity, working with all types of companies to support them in promoting multiculturalism and gender equity in STEM fields.

For 38 years, the conference has been a leading event for professional development, networking, and providing a resource for empowering minorities. For more information about the BEYA STEM Conference, you can visit their website at www.beya.org.
