Student Leadership Conference

Student Leadership Day Conference

On August 13, 2016, students attended the first ASM Student Leadership Day, held in conjunction with ASM Leadership Days. The event featured guest speakers on networking, leveraging LinkedIn, resume development, career management, how to advance in leadership within ASM, and a panel discussion on employment pathways in materials science.

Two specialty talks were also given: The 2050 Challenge, which discussed the engineering challenges encountered in a rural village in Africa and another on Why Stuff Falls Apart, a humorous, motivational lecture that presented the six fundamental causes of failure.  After the conference, students were treated to a dinner and networking reception under the historic ASM Dome.

The conference was a free event open to any Material Advantage students. For any questions, please contact
