2022 Leadership Summit

Exploring Skills to Ensure Women Stand Out in the STEM World”

featuring industry and academic professionals ready to share their experience, practical advice and strategies to expand and make the most of your network.

“The best thing women can do to support one another and bring equity to the STEM field is to build an ever-expanding community and network.

Through her experiences in the workforce, Dr. Bilita Mattes, Executive Director of the STEM-UP Network and Provost and Chief Academic Officer of Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, has learned that these relationships are integral to finding passion and success in a career.

Even accomplished women require support from time to time from an encouraging community and a solid network of colleagues, like the STEM-UP Network. It is often this support that gives us the confidence to point to our achievements and to promote our ideas.”  –
