Women in the Workforce: A Journey in STEM 2021

Women in the Workforce: A Journey in STEM 2021 takes place on September 1, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner and is the second in our series. This onsite event will feature discussions about the challenges professional women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers experience, beginning in grade school and moving through college and into early careers. Among the topics to be examined are potential ways to address these challenges and help young women consider STEM careers for their future.


The event highlights senior career women including those in academia and non-profits as they share their personal journeys. They will offer advice about how both women and men should work with K-12 and college programs to encourage girls and women to explore and pursue STEM education and careers, and how they can hire, promote, encourage, mentor, coach and sponsor women in STEM professionals in the workplace. The event will conclude with a networking reception and opportunities to meet speakers and other attendees in AFCEA's professional community.


The health and safety of our event participants, partners, volunteers, members, and staff remain our highest concern.  Guidelines for gathering safely at events during Covid are fluid and may change between registering for, and attending, this event. Participants should stay at home if feeling ill. We reserve the right to ensure that all attendees, when asked to do so, wear masks, observe social distancing, and generally adhere to any other guidelines in place at the time in order to attend the event. Failure to follow these guidelines or refusal to adhere to the event organizers’ requests will lead to removal from the event site. No refunds will be provided under these circumstances.
