  3. 3. GIT Networking Hi my name is Jenny Oh and my favorite GIT session is Embrace Fear & Learn to Fail. I’ve failed many times in my life, and for the longest time I was ashamed I failed my parents, my friends, my colleagues, my mentors who I look up to, and those who look up to me. It’s hard for a perfectionist like me to come to terms with I’m not perfect. But as I grow older, I realize EVERYONE FAILS, some more miserably than others. The more important thing is to be able to bounce back, because that’s what makes us even better! It’s so important for me to pass that message on to you…because I failed so many times in my life, and many times I wanted to give up, but somehow I found the courage to be resilient – I want you all to be resilient throughout your lives!!!!!

  13. 13. Whitney Vickrey MODERATOR Dr. Connie Thomas Walter Reed Medical Center Jean Orr Leidos PANELISTS •Collaboration & Innovation – We have discussed the core GIT beliefs of collaboration meaning, working with others and leveraging skills to change the world, and innovation meaning, continuously generating creative solutions to solve the problems of the world. First, how has your professional training prepared you to work effectively not only as a team member but a team leader for STEM? Second, can you describe a STEM problem you tackled and how your educational degrees and professional training helped you to keep up with advances? •Reflection - If you could go back and talk to your 16 year old self for a few minutes, what advice would you give her both about STEM, career choices, and this program? •Empowerment - For those women interested in STEM careers, what qualities do these younger women need to succeed? What qualities do you look for when finding exceptional talent / innovative teams?
