We are overjoyed to host you in the Nation’s Capital at the Grand Hyatt Washington Hotel located in the heart of Washington, D.C. Not only will we provide content to help attendees meet short and long term goals, but we will also bring the full DC experience into this conference.


This year’s theme, A Purposeful Journey: From Roots to Legacy, focuses on the continued impact of NSBE Professionals and places the attendees as the key focus of the conference. The Conference Planning Committee is working hard to bring you opportunities to gain new skills, connect with like-minded professionals, and to highlight advancements within the Black professional technology ecosystem – which includes engineers, designers, scientists, inventors, techies, educators, makers, influencers, and many more. 



Our events are designed to share knowledge, expertise, and experience.  While you are in DC, don’t forget to learn from others in your profession, develop linkages with companies and industry leaders, engage with S.T.E.M. professionals, and enable collaborative innovation for your organization.
