OMAHA – The woman at the helm of a multimillion-dollar technology firm will share advice with female STEM students during an upcoming lecture at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
Lisa Wolford, President and CEO of Constellation West, will speak at a free, public event on Tuesday, Feb. 16, from noon – 1 p.m. at the Peter Kiewit Institute, room 158.
The title of her lecture is “STEM Career Strategies: Where the Money Is.”
Those interested in attending can receive a free parking permit for the event via email, by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Lunch will be provided for the first 100 guests.
While the lecture is open to anyone who is interested, the organizers’ goal is to inspire and encourage female students interested in STEM careers, as well as military and veteran students.
Wolford is a UNO alumna and Marine Corps veteran. She founded Constellation West in 1997, primarily focusing on delivering IT solutions for the commercial marketplace. Today the company spans 20 states, and 100 percent of its business comes from federal contracts.
The upcoming lecture is a collaboration of UNO’s Women in IT Initiative; student organization Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (WiSTEM); and the Office of Military and Veteran Services.
