About the AISES Leadership Summit

Get ready for two days of learning and creativity at the American Indian Science and Engineering Society 2022 Leadership Summit. This popular AISES program is perfect for students from high school through postdoctoral – as well as emerging and mature professionals – who want to hone the myriad skills they need to be at their best in a rapidly changing world.

The AISES Leadership Summit delivers on strategies that equip Indigenous science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students and leaders with the knowledge, tools, and wisdom to succeed within the organizational structures in their work or academic lives. 

Through sessions and workshops, Leadership Summit participants learn how to fulfill their potential as STEM leaders as they pursue their career and academic goals. We invite you to join us and experience an innovative leadership development program that incorporates relationships, collaboration, and cultural foundations that will inform and support the unique leader in you.

The Summit is leadership in action from elders, mentors, researchers, students, and professionals that supports the emotional and the motivation in all of us. Together participants inform, interpret, and utilize STEM skills, knowledge, and opportunities to meet challenges, solve problems, build readiness, and spark innovation that gives individuals the ability to succeed in a highly competitive global economy.

Goals of the Summit

  • Enhance the skills and knowledge of participants as they pursue various career development paths and career ladders
  • Provide participants with support and build their confidence to transition into the STEM workforce
  • Develop professional participants as role models for high school, college, graduate, and postdoctoral students
  • Provide an environment that allows participants to "linger and learn" from each other.
