About this Event

FF Judges

NextFlex staff and special guests provide encouragement to students during a virtual FlexFactor Final Pitch earlier this year.

Join us for a virtual roundtable where we will discuss the complex relationship between technology, STEM sector education and employment, socioeconomic opportunity, and diversity/equity and inclusion. The discussion will feature representatives from government, government agencies, industry, education, and the nonprofit sectors who will lead us through a conversation on why each of the areas is important and how they interact to hinder or promote progress.
