Women in Science – A Historical View of Persistence

Success is often achieved through (or despite) a blend of external and internal influences in our life.  Our speaker, Heidi Yantz, will explore influences that can affect the path women take in STEM, drawing from the experiences of friends, coworkers, and herself, as well as a few prominent women scientists.

Heidi is a 1983 PT High School graduate and received a 1984 scholarship from us!  She received a BA in business from the University of Washington and earned a Masters in geosciences from UW-Milwaukee.  She is a licensed hydrogeologist and a principal at a Portland-based engineering firm.
