In honor of Women’s History Month, This Woman’s Work held its inaugural IronWoman Brunch at the Norris Conference Centers Sunday, March 24, 2019. The room bustled with over 80 women in attendance to hear from Vanessa E. Wyche, Deputy Director, NASA who’s leaving her legacy as a woman of history. This Woman’s Work Founder Carla K. Lane sat for an intimate conversation with the only African-American female Deputy Director in a male dominated field. The two discussed Wyche’s reading suggestions, how she chose her mentors, history making challenges, thriving in a work environment with limited female influence, and leadership.
Among the attendees; Wanda Adams, HISD School Board District 9, Karen Carter Richards, Forward Times Publisher, Kim Roxie, LAMIK Beauty Director, Vanessa Reed, Comerica Bank, Colleen Banks and Dorita Hatchett IronWoman Mentors, Naomi Hardy and Martica Sherman recipients of the Founder’s Award.
