Mimi Larrieux '22 - NSBE Conference (Spring 2020)

NSBE logo

This past school year, I used my enrichment funds to participate in the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Nationals Conference this past March! Through SPIRE, I was able to attend the conference and gain exposure to not only new peers studying similar disciplines in STEM to my own majors of Biomedical Engineering and Computer Science, but also industry members and potential mentors that attended the conference as a means of recruiting for internship positions! Walking away from the conference with an expanded network in a field where fellow minorities are rare to find in the work place, I feel extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to attend and look forward to attending an in person conference in the future!
