I am very excited to share that I will be appearing at the Women First series of events presented by Hulu and hosted by Samsung this weekend in New York City! I will be joining other incredible female leaders, and celebrating the launch of Hulu’s new original series The First during this exciting, immersive weekend at the Samsung 837 building in NYC. It’s such an honor to be invited to speak alongside such inspiring women and to work with such notable forward-thinking brands.
The events, which are taking place 9/13 – 9/16 and are FREE, are full of discussions, workshops, and viewings on Samsung’s newest devices. I will be featured in a fireside chat on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 1PM. The amazing leaders of Women You Should Know will be interviewing me about my mission to get to Mars! My event will be accompanied by a screening of Hulu’s new series The First. A big thank you to Hulu for generously donating to my nonprofit, The Mars Generation, in exchange for my appearance on Saturday and help promoting the series of events online.
Other trailblazing women who are appearing at the series of events include leader in fashion and tech Rebecca Minkoff, NASA astronaut Nicole Stott, and Managing Director and CEO Capital Senior Advisor of Bumble Sarah Kunst. Also appearing is Jennifer Fleiss, co-founder and CEO of Jetblack and co-founder of Rent the Runway. Natascha McElhone, actor and star on Hulu’s new original series The First has also taken part in the events, as well as Stephanie Mehta, Editor-in-Chief at Fast Company. Incredible brands such as Female Quotient, She Worx, Women You Should Know, and Girl Develop It are all partnering in this inspiring series of Women In STEM events! I am beyond excited and honored to be a part of this event with this diverse group of impressive women!
This event is close to my heart because, not only is it showcasing women who are making incredible strides in STEM, it is in celebration of the launch of Hulu’s The First – a new fictional show about humanity’s first attempt at putting humans on Mars. As you can see, it’s right up my alley!
