Dear STEM/CTE Educator,
I'm so excited to tell you that the free 2018 STEM Success for Women Telesummit was so successful, we've decided to make it an annual online conference! Between April 17-26, 2018 over 1,200 educators from around the country joined us and 15 speakers online to learn proven strategies for broadening participation in STEM and CTE, and 97% of participants shared that they'd recommend the Telesummit to colleagues.
Thank you so much to everyone who joined us and helped make the conference such a resounding success! I can't wait to see you online again at our next STEM Success for Women Telesummit in April 2019.
If you missed any of the live conference sessions, it's not too late to listen to free podcasts of all 12 sessions on the private conference website. Registration is still open, so you can still sign up for free access to the recordings.
It's time to increase the number of women in STEM and CTE through data-driven strategies with demonstrated outcomes that actually work!
Your STEM programs can emulate real-life changemakers that have...
- More than doubled female enrollment
- Increased retention of female AND male students
- Improved recruitment and retention of women of color
- Significantly increased the number of students in introductory courses choosing STEM majors
This free online Telesummit is filled with secrets and strategies from 15 of the country's top experts and practitioners in the successful recruitment and retention of women and underserved populations in STEM and CTE.
Our speakers shared case studies and best practices to boost your recruitment efforts and help your female students succeed.
Registration is still FREE. The National Science Foundation is supporting the 2018 STEM Success for Women Telesummit, so you can get access to the conference and recordings at no cost.
We invite all educators, particularly at the community college level, to take advantage of this one-of-a-kind free online conference.

Ms. Milgram was previously the PI of the NSF-funded CalWomenTech Project highlighted by NSF for demonstrating significant achievement and program effectiveness. The CalWomenTech Project was chosen as 1 of only 3 model projects in an American Association of University Women research report—Women in Community Colleges: Access to Success.
Ms. Milgram received a reader's choice award for her cover article "How to Recruit Women & Girls to the STEM Classroom" published by International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) in Technology and Engineering Teacher magazine. Donna Milgram founded IWITTS in 1994 and developed the WomenTech Educators Training that helps educators nationwide increase the number of women in their technology programs. Through this highly effective training system, colleges -- including some of the colleges speaking at this Telesummit -- have boosted their recruitment and retention rates in one regular semester. Ms. Milgram has conducted hundreds of trainings on recruiting and retaining female students in STEM education for national, state and regional educational institutions, organizations and employers online and in 46 states and Canada.
