The NAI Celebrates Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month with the NAI

Women’s History Month is an opportunity to celebrate the impact women have made across disciplines. This year’s theme, published annually by the National Women’s History Alliance, is “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence.” 

The National Academy of Inventors will be showcasing the incredible women representing the 2018 class of NAI Fellows across our platforms. Be sure to follow us on social media to hear about the impact they are making in the academic innovation ecosystem.

As pictured below, this week we are featuring Sally Kornbluth, Koduvayur Subbalakshmi, Linda Griffith (row one), Huda Zoghbi, Jessica Fridrich, Elizabeth Blackburn (row two), Susan Baserga, Anna Lesse de Escobar, and Jing Sun (row three).
