Each year PNE directs its attention to a programmatic focus that will help athletes generally, and event attendees more specifically. This year's PNE will close with a panel of experts engaging high school, college, professional and retired athletes in conversation related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). The panel, facilitated by the United Athletes Foundation will be led by the University of Notre Dame's Vice President and Associate Provost Greg Crawford and Racing Toward Diversity Magazine CEO, Fields Jackson. Stay tuned on social media for various updates on the panel scheduled to take place from 5-6pm on Saturday, February 6 at San Jose State University.
