About the AISES Leadership Summit

Get ready for two full days of learning and creativity at the American Indian Science and Engineering Society 2020 Leadership Summit. This popular AISES program is perfect for students from high school through postdoc — as well as emerging and mature professionals — who want to hone the myriad skills they will need to be at their best in this rapidly changing world. The AISES Leadership Summit delivers on strategies that equip Native science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) students and leaders with knowledge, tools, and wisdom to succeed within the organizational structures in their work or academic lives. Through sessions and workshops, Leadership Summit participants learn how to fulfill their potential as STEM leaders as they pursue their career and academic goals. We invite you to join us and experience an innovative leadership development program that incorporates relationships, collaboration, and cultural foundations that will inform and support the unique leader in you.

The Summit is leadership in action from elders, mentors, researchers, students and professionals that supports the emotional and the motivation in all of us. Together participants inform, interpret, and utilize STEM skills, knowledge, and opportunities to meet challenges, solve problems, build student readiness, and spark innovation that gives individuals the ability to compete in a highly competitive global economy.

Goals of the Summit

  • Enhance the skills and knowledge of AISES members in various career development paths and career ladders
