ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- NACME will hold our biennial full-day event NACME SYMPOSIUM – VIRTUAL, The Future of Engineering and Computer Science Education. Friday, September 25th, 2020.

The symposium will reinforce NACME's strategic mission to lead impactful change in the under-representation of minority communities in engineering and computer science. NACME is dedicated to driving innovative pathways in which every student, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or socio-economic status is provided with what they need to participate in the global workforce.

Since 1974, NACME scholarship programs have helped thousands of students and contributed to a more diverse STEM workforce. Working with partner institutions we continue to lead the way in offering financial support to pursue engineering and computer science undergraduate degrees awarded to African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans.

"NACME has just completed a two-year study, with our partner universities, to determine a best in class programmatic and scholarship model. Launched this Fall 2020, NACME is excited to now do the hard work, in partnership with our board companies, university partners and like organizations to recommit to metric based outcomes towards our mutual goal of dramatically increasing diverse participation in STEM." says Michele Lezama President and CEO National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering, Inc.

This year we have curated a program that will bring together corporate and university communities to discuss creating an immediate action plan for talent development within engineering and computer science.

The distinguished members of the Presidents' Panel are President, Gilda Barabino, Olin College, President, Darryll J. Pines, University of Maryland, College Park and President, Gregory Washington, George Mason University. The session will be moderated by Chancellor Gary S. May, University of California Davis.    

To this end, the event we will kick-off with a panel of University Presidents who successfully matriculated through the engineering pathway and now serve as the strategic leads for the future of engineering and computer science education. The Symposium will conclude with a virtual town hall, where a select group of leading corporations, universities, government agencies, and non-profit organizations will add their voice to forward solutions. Please join us, to be a part of the solution!
