On Wednesday, Lenore Pearlstein, co-publisher of INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine, was featured as a panelist on Clemson University’s second annual Women’s Roundtable.
The Women’s Roundtable is a networking opportunity designed to promote, explore, and invest in girls’ and women’s experiences, particularly in STEM fields. The event took place the day before Clemson’s Men of Color National Summit, which aims to close the educational opportunity gap for underrepresented men.
Held at the Greenville Convention Center in South Carolina, the roundtable brought together nearly 500 participants to discuss the importance of education, self-care, and preservation for girls and women. The keynote speakers at the event were Melissa Harris-Perry, the Maya Angelou presidential chair at Wake Forest University, and Sandy Carter, senior vice president of business development at Unstoppable Domains and chair of the non-profit organization Girls in Tech.
The women’s panel was moderated by Jil Littlejohn Bostick, head of diversity, equity, and inclusion at Winnebago Industries. Other panelists included Tonya Matthews, CEO of the International African American Museum; Melissa DeSantiago, PhD student at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health; and Laura Supra, senior product manager at GE Gas Power.
