The California STEM INCLUDES conference is a three day workshop on the general topic of STEM Inclusion across multiple sectors in California. The stakeholders include leaders and administrators in the K - 12 system, Community College System, Cal State System, UC System, private universities, industry, and community partners/philanthropic organizations. The main objective of the meeting is to determine the first steps in developing a state-wide network that would serve as a backbone for STEM inclusion.

The conference will end with a call for action to get engaged in the new California STEM INCLUDES Network.
