We are pleased to announce that our Head of School, Emily Smith, presented at the 2014 Women's Global Leadership Conference in Energy here in Houston. Along with executives from area energy companies, she represented the field of education/academia as a participant on the Panel on STEM education: Bridging the Future Crew Changers. It was an important opportunity to network with the community leaders in the energy business, learn about global trends, peer into the future of technology, discuss the importance of diversity and inclusiveness, and how to empower female leaders within the energy business. We were glad to be a part of this forum. Mrs. Smith tells us, "It was an inspiring experience for all of us; with over 700 in attendance, many excellent ideas were shared about preparing students for the future."
