Voices:Voces Featuring Shayla Rivera

BFB Foundation and Central Piedmont Community College invite you to an upcoming speaker event featuring aerospace engineer, Shayla Rivera, to be held in Central Piedmont's Halton Theater.

Rivera is a former rocket scientist with NASA turned salesperson, corporate trainer, and now international keynote speaker, TEDx speaker, TV & radio host. She is also the current director of the ENGR[x] program and professor of practice with the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University. She has been a lifelong champion of science and education.

The event is important to BFB Foundation’s mission of strengthening communities by supporting education-focused initiatives for girls and women. It provides a platform for community involvement to positively affect economic mobility in the Charlotte Metro Area, especially concerning the underserved. Our efforts will also support immediate action to advance and provide funds for the education of girls in critical areas of job and livelihood growth, particularly in STEM related areas.
