The inaugural Nebraska Women in STEM Conference on March 23, 2023 was a success, with an overwhelming response from attendees who joined us in Lincoln from all over the state. The event was sold out, emphasizing the importance of supporting women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics careers.

Continuing the momentum, we are excited to share that the 2024 conference is positioned to accommodate even more attendees, as well as a wider range of presentations, workshops, and panel discussions. This provides you an opportunity for your company to gain exposure and support the advancement of Nebraska’s women in STEM.
