AISES Leadership Summit Call for Session Proposals

Due: February 17, 2017

The goal of the AISES Leadership Summit is to build the skill and aptitude levels of AISES members in the realm of professional and career development- to better prepare them to attain jobs and careers in STEM fields. To that end, AISES welcomes engaging and innovative session proposals focused on leadership and professional development, including those that integrate indigenous knowledge and values.

Each year AISES strives to provide energizing, inspirational, and thought-provoking content at the AISES Leadership Summit. We thank all previous presenters for contributing their insight and expertise. This year, AISES requests new sessions with content never before presented at an AISES event, with the focus specifically on leadership development. Student and professional attendees should leave sessions with a clear understanding of how the session content will contribute to their leadership development.
