Last year’s Inspiring Women in STEM Conference drew speakers from businesses and organizations such as DuPont, AstraZeneca and the University of Delaware.

This year’s conference — the third annual of its kind — will feature speakers with comparable credits.

“Women in scientific and engineering roles need more than technical skills for career success. We must demonstrate leadership, be effective communicators, develop collaborative teams, and be innovative,” said Jennifer Kmiec, founder and co-chair of the title organization. “The conference will provide educational and interactive sessions to help develop these critical skills.”

Not only does the conference help women across STEM industries build a stable network of their peers, but it provides women with educational opportunities through interactive skill-building sessions that aim to teach women how to be better communicators, how to demystify generational differences and how to develop powerful teams in the workplace.

This year’s conference will feature presentations from:

  • Dr. Gail Folena-Wasserman, SVP and Head of Biopharmaceutical Development at MedImmune
  • Rachel King, CEO of GlycoMimetics
  • Dr. Nancy Targett, Acting President of the University of Delaware
  • Dr. Alexandra Zafiroglu, Experience Architect and Anthropologist at Intel Corporation

The 2015 Inspiring Women in STEM Conference will be held at the DuPont Country Club in Wilmington on Oct. 14. Tickets range from $215 to $515 until Sept. 18.
