The U.S. News STEM Solutions National Leadership Conference will take place June 29 – July 1, 2015, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, CA. The fourth annual conference will bring more than 1,500 stakeholders from all sectors of the national STEM community to San Diego to address a very real and immediate challenge facing America today: the shortage of skilled workers to fill STEM jobs all over the country.


The national conference will assemble the best minds in business, education and government to speak, listen and work toward a self-sustaining STEM pipeline that will ensure opportunities for everyone, regardless of gender, race, socio-economic, or cultural background.

During the four-day conference, the entire STEM community will collaborate, learn, and share with experts and advocates who are proactively working to advance the STEM agenda for national change.
