STEM-OPS 2022 Annual Convening: Access to STEM Education and Careers Is a Human Right, Not a Privilege | October 25–27, St. Louis, MO, at the Marriott St. Louis Grand


NOTE: Agenda subject to change.


Be part of the first in-person (only) conference dedicated to expanding access to STEM education and careers to people impacted by incarceration.

 

WHEN: October 25–27 (see agenda on tab at left for start and end times)

WHERE: Marriott St. Louis Grand, St. Louis, Missouri


STEM education in the United States offers access to in-demand, well-paying jobs that are crucial to our national, and individual, well-being. But, access to STEM education and careers is not equal. STEM prison education programs are scarce, preventing individuals who are incarcerated from entering the STEM workforce. In addition, outside of prison, inequitable and exclusionary systems reinforce limited access to STEM education and careers for many.

 

Join us and come together at the first, in-person convening dedicated to expanding access to STEM education and careers to people who have been impacted by incarceration. The STEM-OPS 2022 convening is a 2 ½ day event that will feature speakers, panels, research, interactive presentations, and peer-to-peer discussions for people who share this mission.

 

Attend to learn from STEM-OPS partners and others about:

·     Launching and leading STEM college-in-prison programming

·     Establishing mentoring, internships, and other supports for currently or formerly incarcerated students in STEM fields 

·     Supporting for inclusive hiring of justice-impacted individuals in STEM careers

·     Ensuring that the voices of justice-impacted individuals are present among STEM educators, professionals, and scholars

·     Building strategies to strengthen pedagogy and instruction for STEM college-in-prison programs and to disrupt the K-16 school-to-prison pipeline

 

STEM-OPS is committed to elevating the perspectives of people who have been directly impacted by incarceration and many sessions feature the work of STEM-OPS partners who are justice-impacted. Fees for attendance at the convening are waived for people who are justice-impacted (Enter the code “STEMSUCCESS” when completing the registration).
