DuPont will be hosting a virtual one-day seminar series and oral presentation competition at the 48th National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) Annual Conference. This collaborative initiative supports DuPont’s commitment to a diverse workforce and is the third installment of DuPont’s GOLD (Growth Opportunities Leading in Diversity) program, a platform intended to expose doctoral and post-doctoral scientists from underrepresented groups (African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American) to the wide range of career opportunities in industrial research at DuPont.

The theme of this year’s GOLD seminar competition at NOBBCChE is “Makers of New: Developing Innovation for Tomorrow”. 


Selected participants will give an oral presentation on their research, competing to win $1000, participate in networking and mentoring sessions with DuPont scientists, and receive an interview with a DuPont recruiter.
