32nd Annual GMiS Conference

"Every Challenge, Every Frontier"
October 5 - 9, 2020



"Every Challenge, Every Frontier” is the theme for this year’s conference, and little did we know how prescient this theme would turn out to be. The GMiS Conference has long been a premier venue where college students and professionals from all underserved communities can connect with the companies, government agencies and higher education institutions looking to recruit diverse technical talent. Even under these unprecedented circumstances, we’re committed to delivering a dynamic and substantive conference experience for 2020.

We will be incorporating the most highly-regarded virtual conference platforms.  Many past conference attendees will already be familiar with CVENT, our registration platform.  We will be adding Brazen for the career fair, Zoom for seminars and workshops, and Shindig for networking receptions and hospitality suites.  And, we are working to ensure everything is highly integrated and secure via our GMiS Conference Portal that will launch in September.
