Since 2015, CAHSI has partnered with the Great Minds in Stem (GMiS) conference, previously known as the Hispanic Engineer National Achievement Awards Corporation (HENAAC) conference, to provide students an inspiring experience that lends to student-focused growth and connection building. From discovering career pathways to learning about internship opportunities this is an annual event for students in computing or another STEM field.
The CAHSI Summit is a series of technical and professional development sessions that engage faculty, students, industry, national labs, and other collaborators. The CAHSI Summit disseminates effective and promising practices, facilitates connections, prepares students in higher education and productive careers in computing, and promotes strategies that address the advancement of Hispanics in computing. The CAHSI Summit is an excellent opportunity to engage with CAHSI leaders, their student peers, and the broader STEM community.
