The 2021 Women in Leadership event honors the legacy of Sally Ride, the first American woman in space, and also celebrates the 20th anniversary of Sally Ride Science. The panel discussion brings together trailblazers who have shattered barriers and paved the way for women across the globe.

Tam O’Shaughnessy, Ride’s life partner and cofounder of Sally Ride Science, conceived of the first Women in Leadership event in 2018 to celebrate the dedication of a U.S. Postal Service Forever stamp in Ride’s honor. That lively and thought-provoking conversation gave rise to an annual event aimed at inspiring girls and women to embrace leadership roles.

Through a candid and timely discussion, the distinguished panel will share their personal stories and vision on how women can help lead our nation to a better future.
