Invest in your talent pipeline by raising brand awareness and meeting talented individuals face-to-face. But how and where to get in front of them. This article contains a handy list for those recruiting in the US. It covers conferences focusing on:

Keen to collect similar lists for across the globe, if you have one please do send over so I can share: firstname.lastname@example.org
Most employers hiring for STEM-related roles are aware of the skewed representation that exists among graduates entering the field. Despite earning more than half of bachelor’s degrees, women make up only 36% of all STEM fields and less than 20% of degrees in engineering and computer science. And Black, Hispanic/Latinx and Native American students collectively earn only 16% of bachelor’s degrees in STEM. With these numbers, it’s imperative that employers utilize every avenue possible to connect with talented graduates seeking to enter the workforce.
