Dear 50K Coalition National Convening Attendee
On behalf of the 50K Coalition Leadership Circle, we want to thank you for attending the 50K’s 4th annual National Convening on Thursday, April 21st.
We hope that you found the convening informative and worthwhile. The primary goal of this conference was to deepen our understanding of the ecosystem impacting the successes and challenges of BIPOC and Women engineering students. We believe that our convening speakers and panelists provided in-depth insight to help the 50K Coalition become more effective in the ongoing collective impact efforts in critical areas such as undergraduate engineering student support and retention and community college retention, and four-year transfer pathways.
Your presence helped make this virtual convening a great success, and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together productive and fun.
