BEYA38: Celebrating Excellence in STEM

Earlier this month, I had the privilege of attending the 38th BEYA Conference in Baltimore. It was a convergence of brilliance, innovation, and diversity—a true celebration of what makes STEM thrive.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Diversity Unleashes Magic: BEYA38 reinforced that diversity isn’t just a buzzword; it’s the secret sauce for groundbreaking innovation. When minds from different backgrounds collide, magic happens. The energy in those conference halls was electric!
  2. New Connections: Meeting fellow professionals, visionaries, and rising stars was invigorating. The talent pool was vast, and the conversations—priceless.
  3. UL Research Institutes: At our modest booth, we proudly introduced UL Research Institutes’ contributions to safety science. ULRI strives to tangibly save lives through research and innovation—that’s the heart of STEM. Witnessing that spark ignite in students and professionals as we discussed ULRI’s mission was incredibly rewarding.

BEYA39 Awaits!: If you missed BEYA38 this year, fear not! Mark your calendar for next year’s BEYA39 event. Trust me, it’s an experience you won’t want to miss. Let’s continue championing diversity and shaping the future of STEM together!
