This was one of the most informative and inspirational meetings I have attended in decades. There can no longer be any excuses for our states to not recognize the value and importance of the research-intensive institutions. In small states, like Iowa, they are especially critical to the lives of ALL Iowa citizens.
Wonderful talk! Holly was full of energy and inspiring. I have attended countless panels and talks on STEM careers outside of academia. They get quite repetitive, but Holly brought a fresh perspective and offered us tangible steps to work toward our goals. This ranks as one of my favorite and one of the most useful of these types of talks that I have attended. Thank you!
