September 23 – 25, 2021 | Phoenix, Arizona

Join us to explore the theme: Together Toward Tomorrow at the 2021 AISES National Conference! The national conference is a unique, three-day event focusing on educational, professional, and workforce development for Indigenous peoples of North America and the Pacific Islands in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) studies and careers. Attendees include Indigenous high school and college students, educators, and professionals, including representatives from Tribal Nations, Tribal enterprises, and Indigenous-owned businesses. The conference also includes the LARGEST college and career fair in the U.S. for Indigenous students and professionals! Exhibitors at the College and Career fair represent a diverse range of corporations, educational institutions, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, Tribes, and Indigenous-owned businesses.

Call for Sessions

AISES has opened the call for session proposals and encourages a diverse array of session presenters and STEM topics. If you have not yet presented at an AISES conference, we encourage you to submit a session proposal. This year, AISES will offer live streaming of selected sessions that will be presented in-person. All presenters must be in-person at the event. AISES will not live stream any presentation off-site.

Sessions AISES is Specifically Seeking this Year:

While we encourage you to propose any session that fits well within one of our nine tracks and/or for Boeing STEM Day, this year we are also specifically seeking session proposals that address the topics listed under each track. We encourage sessions that are interactive, upbeat, and inspiring. Sessions that draw the largest attendance and best evaluations are those that include activities and audience participation. We encourage panel discussions that offer diverse insight and information. We have also found that attendees like “themed” sessions that draw on contemporary pop culture (movies, music, etc.) to help contextualize the content.
