“Half of the world’s innovators are women,” Tyson says.

I was so profoundly impressed and inspired by Professor Tyson. Her resume and credentials match her passion for equality among us all and she reminded me of the type of professor I had in school where you want to get there a few minutes early and sit in the front row. Her perspective and impact on pushing forward how women are treated globally and how we can educate ourselves about equality are something I encourage all of you to explore.
