The Canadian Black Scientists Network is pleased to host you for a rich, four day virtual, multidisciplinary program featuring research in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine & Health (STEMM). We welcome participants from across Canada and abroad, and provide bilingual programming options and accessibility supports. 

Highlights of BE-STEMM 2023 include keynote talks by established and rising star Black scholars in STEMM, contributed talks by Black scholars, practitioners, students, and educators across disciplines, panel discussions, and an opportunity to mentor emerging Black scientists in our Science Fair. In partnership with the Black Engineers of Canada, our virtual Career Fair features varied employment opportunities and programs.  

The final day of the conference features a unique opportunity to share promising practices for Black inclusion. This year, BE-STEMM Beyond Borders convenes discussion panels as part of a year-long series of dialogues funded by a grant from the American Embassy in Canada.
