Here at TeraThink, we work to create opportunities for everyone to learn. Recently we had the opportunity to have the 23rd Secretary of the Air Force, Deborah Lee James, talk to us about her new book Aim High: Chart Your Course And Find Success. Hosted by our Leadership Community of Practice, Debbie shared some lessons learned from her very impressive career.
I am lucky enough to know Debbie in her role as a Board Member here at TeraThink. I knew that her insights and inspiration would be spot-on for our audience. As outlined in her book, Debbie told us her story. She shared how failures had become successes and about how a path that seemed clear was actually not. Most importantly, Debbie told us that having purpose and passion are keys to a life well lived.
Today is the 10th annual Ada Lovelace Day. It is a day to take time to recognize the accomplishments of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The goal is to increase the visibility of women in STEM in order to create role models for future generations of STEM professionals.
Here at TeraThink, we have no shortage of role models. We wanted to shine the spotlight some of them. I asked them to share how they got started in the technology field and any inspirations they had.
