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? 

Co-Sponsored with: IDEAS Festival, Purdue Polytechnic Institute, Women in Engineering, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Minority Engineering Program, and The Honors College
