Engineering Your Foundation

Join the Black STEM Movement in KC!

NSBE 2025’s Vision is a world in which engineering is a mainstream word in homes and communities of color and all Black students can envision themselves as engineers. This vision is vindicated by NSBE’s goal of graduating 10,000 Black engineers a year by 2025. But how do we get from now to our goal in 2025 you may ask? We do that by “Engineering Your Foundation” at NSBE’s 43rd Annual Convention, at the Kansas City Convention Center, in Kansas City, Mo.  Address: 301 W 13th St, Kansas City, MO 64105.

NSBE’s 43rd Annual Convention looks to be your catalyst for a strong and solid foundation to be built for our communities of color that focuses on how engineers are created and retained as we strive to move the needle forward to NSBE 2025.

Graduating 10,000 Black engineers is achieved through setting your individual foundation that is unique to each of us. No one formula works for every Black pre-college, collegiate, or professional engineer to get to NSBE 2025, so the theme is designed to focus on YOU and YOUR Individual needs.

You can expect programming that will focus on the 3 pillars of NSBE’s Mission:

  1. Excel Academically
  2. Succeed Professionally
  3. Cultural Responsibility

All of this programming will culminate with you leaving with the resources, inspiration, and a network to Engineer Your Foundation. So ask yourself, “What is My Foundation that I need to fulfill the NSBE Mission and Vision?”
