Event Description:
Ready, Set, Goal Network
Women coming together & growing together

The Ready, Set, Goal Network is a community of Women Coming Together and Growing Together in the Blackstone Valley and beyond. This network is a revitalized program for the Chamber which we have big plans for going forward in 2017. Educational and inspirational speakers will be invited to engage with guests and provide insight on how to improve their personal and professionals lives. Guests will be able to take relevant information and discuss it together as a group as well as bring their newly found insight back to their colleagues. We are very excited to share this with our members and provide even more value!  

Laurie Leshin, President of WPI
Inspiring Future Innovations

Guest Speaker Biography:

Laurie Leshin is in her third year of service as the President of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), in Worcester, Massachusetts. She is committed to elevating WPI’s impact in communities worldwide, a theme developed in WPI’s strategic plan through effort to strengthen WPI’s already-distinctive undergraduate programs, while advancing graduate education and research. In a recognition of this focus, the Wall Street Journal recently named WPI as the #1 University in the nation for integrating excellent teaching with outstanding research.
Leshin brings to WPI over 20 years of experience as a leader in academia and government service, and an accomplished record as a space scientist. Prior to joining WPI, Leshin served as the Dean of the School of Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York. While at 

Rensselaer, Leshin continued her work as a scientist for the Mars Curiosity Rover mission and was appointed by President Obama to the Advisory Board for the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

Prior to joining Rensselaer, Leshin spent six years at NASA in several senior executive roles, including the deputy director of NASA’s future human spaceflight program. Before joining NASA, Leshin was the Dee and John Whiteman Dean’s Distinguished Professor of Geological Sciences at Arizona State University.  While at ASU, Leshin was appointed by President Bush to serve on the Commission for the Implementation of United States Space Exploration Policy.

Leshin received a B.S. in chemistry from ASU and a Ph.D. in geochemistry from the California Institute of Technology. She is married to Dr. Jon Morse, an astrophysicist who is chief executive officer of the BoldlyGo Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing space-based science and discovery.
