Living our Mission: Advancing Leadership & Careers

[siteorigin_widget class=”LSOW_Heading_Widget”] [/siteorigin_widget]

A core piece of the SACNAS mission is to support those most underrepresented in STEM to advance into leadership positions. We foster this development by cultivating STEM students and professionals through trainings, building networks, and professional development.

We also work to apply these principles of leadership training and advancement to the nonprofit professionals who choose to serve SACNAS as staff.
