One of the distinguishing characteristics of this annual event is the very porous boundary separating the speakers and attendees. Specifically, the invited audience is comprised of high level stakeholders in the education and STEM arenas – including esteemed policy advisors, business leaders, education strategists and leading academics. An online portal and other communications efforts encourage continued dialogue among attendees during the course of the year and leading to the next event.
