About this Event

An Evening with Dr. Ellen Ochoa (Ideas Festival, Space Exploration)

Dr. 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?

Parking available at the Grant Street Parking Garage and Wood Street Parking Garage.

Co-Sponsored with the Ideas Festival, Women in Engineering, Purdue Polytechnic Institute, Department of Physics and Astronomy and the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering
