An Evening with Dr. Ellen Ochoa – Purdue University
September 26, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
An Evening with Dr. Ellen Ochoa, NASA Astronaut and First Latina in Space
ELLEN OCHOA is the first Hispanic woman ever to go to space. She’s also only the second female Director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center—where she led the human space flight enterprise for the nation from 2013 to 2018. Ochoa is a trailblazer like no other. As an in-demand speaker, she touches on resonant issues that have defined her historic career: What can we learn about change, innovation, and the culture of teams from her time at the upper reaches of NASA’s leadership? And what can we do—really do—to ensure that more women and minorities find a place within STEM fields?
