Participants will discuss the need to break down barriers and build a pipeline for women to participate in the Commonwealth’s innovation economy.
The event, in Watson Auditorium, will also feature remarks from U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III, and a breakout session moderated by Yvonne Spicer, vice president of advocacy and educational partnerships at the Museum of Science's National Center for Technological Literacy.
