Dr. Sheri Sheppard: Career paths, engineering, and research
October 9, 2019

Dr. Sheri Sheppard spoke at the quarterly Women@SLAC Employee Resource Group meeting on October 9th. She involved attendees in an interactive meeting related to career paths and the field of engineering specifically; however, lessons learned from her research have implications beyond engineering. This is an especially poignant talk if you are a member of an underrepresented group or support someone who is. Hope you enjoy it! https://vimeo.com/365631682/5c7ab084a3 Slides located here: https://slac.sharepoint.com/sites/ESH/affiliated/women_at_SLAC/PowerPoint%20Presentations/Forms/AllItems.aspx
