"A Showcase for Women Innovators" with guest speaker Jane Plitt

Who knew that WiFi, GPS, rocket fuel, electric heaters, car signals, mechanical dishwashers, and duct tape are some of the many examples of innovations created by women! But does anyone know who these accomplished women were?

Over the course of her career advocating for women's equality (Executive Director of NOW, author, business owner), Jane Plitt began to realize that our country needed someplace to showcase women innovators in all fields to change society’s perceptions and inspire young girls.

To meet that need, Jane founded the National Center of Women's Innovations (NCWI). This Alexandria-based organization brings focus to the forgotten accomplishments of women innovators and use those accomplishments to inspire the next generation. (
