SNHU Business Indicator Series – Diversity in STEM
April 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
As proud sponsors to the Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) 2019-2020 Business Indicator Series, we invite you to attend the event Diversity in STEM Panel.
An interactive discussion that puts culture under the microscope
Thursday, April 9, 2020 | 5:30-7:00 p.m. ET | CETA Building, 1st Floor Classroom, SNHU (2500 North River Road, Manchester, NH)
Many employers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields struggle to retain workforce diversity and representation. We believe that colleges and universities must play a significant role in building a culture of inclusion and belonging in STEM disciplines. In this interactive discussion exploring issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM at SNHU and beyond, you’ll hear from a panel of students, alumni, faculty, and employers as they discuss ways in which academic departments can help empower under-represented students to shape their success in STEM fields, and how area businesses are stepping up to build inclusive work cultures.
This event is brought to you by the Office of Alumni Engagement, in partnership with the Deborah L. Coffin Women’s Center, the Office of Diversity Programs, the Office of the President and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and SNHU STEM programs.
5:30 p.m. – Networking and light refreshments

6:45 p.m. – Q&A and wrap-up
