Professionals in STEM Conference

SHPE’s Professionals in STEM Conference delivers sessions and workshops to benefit our professional members from entry-level engineers to those transitioning to be mid-level managers. SHPE seeks to provide an innovative learning approach to ensure that attendees leave the convention feeling empowered with effective strategies that target communication, workplace integration and style, and career mapping to take their career to the next level.


ENTREPRENEURSHIP

FROM SIDE HUSTLE TO WORLD CLASS ENTERPRISES

Latin@s are the most entrepreneurial group of people in the United States. From manufacturing tortillas and dresses to construction companies and software developers….our abuelitas, tios, and our peers are doing it all.

SHPE’s entrepreneurship track showcases a series of workshops and activities to guide you along the path to business ownership.  

Participants will learn to use entrepreneurial skills to succeed at their job or their own business, and gain clarity around which steps to take first, second, and third – no guessing! They will learn how to transition from being an employee to an entrepreneur, and how to maximize technical skills to create a profitable product.


PMP CERTIFICATION FOR PROFESSIONALS

Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is the most widely recognized certification for project managers. PMPs work in virtually all industries, all disciplines, and all geographies. PMPs garner 20% higher salaries on average than those without certification. SHPE National Convention attendees can earn certification hours and credit towards PMP Certification.

SHPE will offer the opportunity for Professional members to receive *PMP Certification Training*. These certification hours will be offered through our SHPE Propel program, powered by MindEdge.
