WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP 2023
Tam O’Shaughnessy, Sally 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.
