I had a wonderful experience speaking to the Coast Guard Diversity and Women’s Leadership group on April 9. They invited me to speak at a luncheon celebrating Women’s History Month.
The theme was near and dear to my heart: “Women inspiring Innovation through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.” It was an honor to share my personal journey and perspective on being a woman in a leadership position in the scientific community.
I also really enjoyed the videos of the Kalani High School and Sacred Hearts robotics teams competing in the national championships. It was great to meet the students and I invited them to take a tour of our new Cancer Center so they can see, first hand, state-of-the-art, scientific and research laboratories.
