Trailblazing Women Share Inspiring Stories as Part of Women in Leadership 2022

“Why women?” asks journalist and author Lynn Scherr at the outset of this year’s Women in Leadership panel. It’s a question that not only gives insight into the minds of the panelists but breaks open the issues presented to all women – politically and personally – in the year 2022. Labor leader and activist Dolores Huerta, visual effects supervisor at Pixar Animation Studios Danielle Feinberg, and NASA aerospace engineer Aprille Ericsson, all share insightful responses colored by their own everyday experiences as well as in the workplace. A lively discussion of activism, education, science, and society follows while finding commonality and providing inspiration for women at all stages of life.
