STEM: How the U.S. Hispanic Community will Define the Future of U.S. Competitiveness

The growing concern of Hispanic underrepresentation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related careers poses a serious threat to both our overall prosperity and national security. As one of the nation's premiere Hispanic organizations, CHLI strongly believes that the U.S. Hispanic community will play an ever-increasing role in the future competitiveness of our country. Please join us and other key decision makers from Congress, as we discuss strategies and best practices to reduce the leadership deficit in this important sector.
