I want to thank the entire TEDxCPP team for all their hard work in preparing the event on our campus.
I hope all the women — and men — who watch it remember how important it is to listen to “the female voice in the room.”
When people collaborate, there is a greater chance of success. Collaboration works best when there is diversity within the people. Making sure to speak up on behalf on your identities and make sure they are being represented is important.
