Latina Rivers: Right stuff, wrong sex

Talk Info

Talk Description

The effort to narrow the gender gap in STEM careers may be misdirected. Women are far less represented in engineering than in other STEM disciplines. Latina Rivers is part of the solution as a graduate student and NASA liaison. Her talk is eye-opening. Latina Rivers serves as CEO Liason at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, while pursuing her Ph.D. at the University of Alabama Huntsville in Material Science and Engineering.
