The extensive research that exposed the Hidden Figures at NASA between the 1930s and 1960s sends a strong message in 2020. How do we ensure that we engage people from all demographic groups in the STEM enterprise along the educational and career continuum? Author Margot Lee Shetterly will speak to this issue and discuss the journey that led to her nationally award-winning book and movie, Hidden Figures — the true story of the black women mathematicians at NASA who helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space.
