7th Annual oSTEM Conference


Out in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics is pleased to invite you to our seventh annual conference in Chicago, Illinois. We look forward to hundreds of our members from across the country coming together for this four-day conference experience, taking place November 16-19, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare. Join us in a celebration of diversity across all fields.

Beginning in 2011, the oSTEM Annual Conference has brought together diverse students and professionals from various STEM fields in the interest of professional development and the creation of safe and inviting places to study and work in the sciences. The 2016 conference saw more than 550 students and professionals in attendance.
