The Women’s Business Council (WBC) of the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber is pleased to present Empowering Women in Missile Defense, an opportunity to recognize and celebrate female voices from across the aerospace & defense industry and the roles they play in the missile defense mission.
Huntsville is a unique hub of technology and people central to the protection of the nation and its allies. More unique is the number of women who have been leading, pioneering and mentoring others for this noble mission. Join us for lunch, provided by Raytheon Technologies, and a fireside chat with female leaders and business owners as they discuss this year’s theme: “Why we need diversity of thought to get to next-generation capabilities.”
Speakers and fireside chat panelists include:
