Register now for the DIVERSE-W Speaker Series webinar featuring Dr. Aprille Ericsson, Aerospace Engineer and NASA’s New Business Lead for Instrument Systems and Technology.
The DIVERSE-W Pact Project, led by Sandia National Laboratories and funded by DOE Office of Technology Transitions, is hosting a virtual Fireside Chat and Q&A with Dr. Aprille Ericsson on Thursday, October 14th at 10am PT / 11am MT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET.
Aprille is the first African-American woman to receive a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Howard University, as well as the first African-American woman to receive a Ph.D. at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. She has played key roles in spacecraft and instrument design as an aerospace engineer and instrument manager. Her desire to pursue this career stemmed from watching NASA spacecraft launches on television as a child and participating in youth science programs. In addition to her roles at NASA, she has taught at numerous universities and contributed to instruction on Aerospace theory.
This is the second event in the DIVERSE-W Speaker Series designed to share the stories of women leaders in patenting, STEM, innovation, and entrepreneurship. All employees of the DOE, DOE Labs, sites, and plants are welcome to attend.
Tickets are FREE. The DIVERSE-W Speaker Series is exclusive to employees of the DOE, DOE Labs, sites, and plants, so please refrain from sharing this invitation externally. You will receive a Zoom Webinar link via email closer to the event date.
