About this event
The global COVID-19 pandemic has a far-reaching impact on the way we work and learn. Omaha STEM Ecosystem, an organization that coordinates connections to high-quality STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Mathematics) programming and resources throughout the region, will host two virtual community roundtable discussions that begin Sept. 23 on Celebrating Creativity in a COVID-19 Culture. “A critical workforce shortage, now heighted by COVID-19, is an increasingly complex issue facing STEM today. Omaha STEM Ecosystem’s Roundtable Series will draw on the knowledge of our diverse network of thought leaders and experts to understand implications to our work, education and future workforce,” said Julie Sigmon, director of Omaha STEM Ecosystem. The hour-long virtual STEM roundtables on Sept. 23 and Oct. 20 at 8:30 a.m. will explore COVID-19 experiences and review lessons learned. The first roundtable on June 23 identified equity in technology and maximizing technology as key overarching themes that will be explored further. Beth Morrissette, CEO of Parlay Consulting Firm, will facilitate the virtual Roundtable Series, which will engage attendees in thoughtful and strategic conversations. Roundtable event registration is available at If registration code OSERT2020 is used, the roundtables will be offered for no fee, thanks to the generosity of event sponsors Clarkson College, Avenue Scholars Foundation, BVH Architecture, Metropolitan Community College, Olsson, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium and the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s STEM Trail Center.
