For Lori Lentsch, general director, Tech, careers in STEM require visibility and opportunity for all backgrounds. She envisions a bright future for the field, where “well-established women in STEM uplift other women. There is so much opportunity right now to grow and innovate.”
Lentsch’s continued advocacy for diversity in STEM earned her recognition among Profiles in Diversity Journal’s Women Worth Watching in STEM, joining a legacy of accomplished women in the field.
