Dr. Shirley Ann Jackson returns to the "AEW" stage for the third time on April 25, 2019. Hosted by the National Science and Technology Medals Foundation at Howard University, An Evening With Shirley Ann Jackson will give audiences a unique opportunity to get to know the woman TIME Magazine deemed, "perhaps the ultimate role model for women in science." Dr. Jackson is the President of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the first African-American woman to receive a doctorate degree from MIT, and a 2014 National Medal of Science Laureate.
The evening's conversation will be led by Dr. Bruce Jones, the Vice President of Research at Howard University. Dr. Jones leads the re-established Office of Research on campus where he oversees the development of a diverse, robust research portfolio.
