The Smithsonian Science Education Center in collaboration with Shell USA, Inc. is hosts an annual STEM Education Summit to engage leadership teams throughout the US who have identified problems of practice related to attracting and retaining a diverse STEM teaching workforce. This Summit is a highly interactive experience, with a clear outcome at the end – giving education systems the tools to develop district-specific “action plans” for attracting and retaining minority STEM teachers to leadership roles while remaining in the classroom.
The 2024 Diversity in STEM Education Summit will be hosted in Washington, D.C.
Participants selected for the program who reside outside of a 50-mile radius of Washington, D.C. will receive travel and accommodations provided by the Smithsonian Science Education Center.
