SHPEtinas Conference


The theme of this year's SHPEtinas: Igniting Latinas in STEM Conference is ¡Valientes! You are the inspiration behind this year’s theme. When we think of the SHPE Familia – students, professionals, speakers, and the SHPEtina’s legacy – the common thread is bravery. In pursuit of our education, passions, and the careers we build for ourselves in the STEM fields, ser valientes is a necessity. We hope this year’s conference helps you fearlessly harness your power in overcoming adversity and inspires you to be bold, courageous, and valiente.

Every year, the SHPEtinas Conference strives to accelerate Latina representation at all levels of corporate and academic leadership in STEM while affirming the Latina identity. The SHPEtinas Conference hosts attendees at all levels of their educational and professional journey as well as academia and advisors.

Attendees will:

  • Engage in empowering workshops that support Latinas’ technical and leadership development enabling them with tools to succeed.
  • Contribute openly in candid conversations with the SHPE familia discussing gender representation and career advancement.
  • Celebrate and highlight SHPEtinas’ technical achievements in the workforce and academia.

The planned events include workshops, panels, a luncheon, a leader breakfast, and for the first time a SHPEtinas brunch!
