Conference for LGBTQ+ People in STEM
The 14th Annual oSTEM Conference will take place in Portland, OR with 1,100+ LGBTQ+ students, professionals, and recruiters in STEM fields from across the country and around the globe. This space is designed for attendees to share their professional and personal experiences and learn from one another in an authentic and vulnerable way. Programs and content range from introspective (e.g., safer spaces to talk about queer issues and career development) to technical (e.g., discussing the latest in research conducted by our members). The Career & Graduate School Expo allows attendees to connect and network with professionals, academics, and colleagues from STEM industries and universities. For more examples of sessions, speakers, and career expo exhibitors, visit the "2022 Recap" page. If you want a space where you can be your authentic LGBTQ+ self and your authentic STEM self, this is the conference for you!
