ATLAS: Advancing Tomorrow’s Leaders in STEM
November 9 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Advancing Tomorrow’s Leaders in STEM (ATLAS) is a college and career readiness symposium that provides a space for students typically underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to connect with business leaders, colleges, government, and potential employers.
Each ATLAS event offers meaningful opportunities for businesses, professionals, and volunteers to engage with the ATLAS audience as well supporters from local, state, and national companies. Since 2013 MdBio has hosted nine ATLAS events, engaging over 1,100 participants in meaningful dialogues about STEM career options and the educational pathways required to reach those career goals.
ATLAS plays an important role in increasing awareness of STEM to promote rewarding and high paying jobs within Maryland and the mid-Atlantic region. ATLAS is addressing a critical business need in Maryland, which requires a strong pipeline of skilled STEM workers to power the state’s growing science and technology business.
