Karen McKinnon, Ph.D
Descartes Labs,
Applied Scientist

For hundreds of years, women have played a prominent role in the American southwest, from the matrilineal Hopi tribes to the early founders of the Santa Fe art colonies. The openness and space of the southwest have made it a place for exploration, risk, and new beginnings. Today, we can choose to continue this tradition in the modern world by pushing the boundaries of female participation in science and technology, with the auxiliary benefit of spurring economic growth in New Mexico.
Join Karen McKinnon as she talks about her own journey as a woman in science, and what her experiences around the nation and world have taught her about increasing female participation in technology.
