8th Annual oSTEM Conference • Making SPACE for Everyone

Out in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics is pleased to invite you to the 8th Annual Conference in Houston, Texas, November 15-18, 2018.

Fermilab at oSTEM:

“With the shortage of students seeking degrees in STEM fields in the US, it’s very encouraging to see so many people from the LGBTQ+ community not only pursuing these career paths but joining together to create a mutually supportive space. Attending oSTEM is a great opportunity to meet and talk to the next generation of scientists, engineers, and IT professionals from our community.”  — Pete Cholewinski, Fermilab Compensation Analyst

“This was my first time attending the oSTEM conference. I was blown away at the large turnout. Very nearly a thousand attendees. It was very energizing. But, what’s interesting is that I didn’t see the attendees as members of the LGBTQIA community. Rather, I saw them as students and professionals in STEM, who felt empowered with self-esteem to succeed in their chosen STEM profession. Definitely a motivating experience.” — Maurice Ball, Fermilab Accelerator Division Mechanical Support Department
