Thank you to everyone who attended our 2022 Conference in Boston, MA from November 10 - 13, 2022. We were so excited to have everyone re-join us in-person and overjoyed to see the great LGBTQ+ STEM community again. Our event was a huge success thanks to contributions from our volunteers, staff, exhibitors, sponsors, OAC members, and most of all our attendees!  

We are looking forward to seeing everyone again next fall in Anaheim, CA!
