Don’t miss this opportunity to attend a special reception and panel discussion with Margot Lee Shetterly — the author of the book "Hidden Figures," which is now an Oscar-nominated film.

Her book celebrates the incredible, untold story of three women who were the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: launching John Glenn into orbit. Their achievement restored the nation’s confidence and still inspires us to continue pushing boundaries today.

Presented in collaboration by the College of Engineering, Ohio State ADVANCE and the Honda-Ohio State Partnership.
