NOTE: All times are Central Time

The 2021 Women in STEM Conference is an initiative of the Women in STEM Leadership Collaborative. The Women in STEM Leadership Collaborative connects "Women in STEM" focused student organizations and programs across UT Austin, providing opportunities for collaboration, leadership development, and other initiatives to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in STEM across UT Austin. The Women in STEM Leadership Collaborative is made possible thanks to the generous support of 3M and the Women in Engineering Program (WEP).

The conference kicks off Wednesday, February 17, with the Re-sonate Convention. It continues with events through Girl Day at UT Austin from February 20 through March 1. Throughout March, we celebrate Women’s History Month with WEP Leadership Workshops hosted each Wednesday and FabFems Friday Webinars hosted each Friday. We celebrate International Women's Day on March 8 with STEM mentor moments all day on social media. The Association for Women in Science (AWIS) Night for Women in STEM is tentatively scheduled for Friday, March 26.
