Afternoon Signature Session

Mae Jemison, MD with Betty Nguyen

Mae Jemison gives new meaning to the expression "the sky's the limit." In addition to her pioneering role as the first African-American woman to travel in space, she is a successful entrepreneur and a passionate crusader for science education and literacy. In her latest endeavor, she is leading the 100 Year Starship initiative, tackling the massive challenges of innovation and planning to ensure human space travel to another star within the century. As a woman who continues to excel in the traditionally male-dominated realms of science, technology, and medicine, Jemison provides inspiring stories about achieving one's potential.
