Houston Spotlight

oSTEM's Executive Committee and Conference Chair visited Houston, TX and our conference venue prior to deciding the conference location. During that visit, they were able to not only explore Houston and check out potential conference venues but also meet with leaders and members from local LGBTQ+ organizations.

We've highlighted some of these wonderful organizations on the Houston Spotlight page and we highly recommend checking it out.
