GIT Talks: STEM Career Exploration Panel Speaker: Linda Powell, Chief Data Officer, Consumer Financial Protection Linda Powell is the Chief Data Officer of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Previously, she was the CDO at the Office of Financial Research within the U.S. Treasury Department as well as the Chief of the Data Management and Analysis section at the Federal Reserve Board. She has a BA in Economics from Rutgers University and an MS in Quantitative Finance from George Washington University. She has over 25 years of experience in the finance industry including a money center bank, the Federal Reserve Bank of NY, Board of Governors, OFR, and CFPB. Speaker: Veronica (Ronni) McTier, Energy Efficiency Manager, ICF International Ronni McTier was born in Louisville, KY and was graduated from Sullivan University in Mechanical Engineering. She has lived in the DC area for four years. She currently works for ICF International as an Energy Efficiency Manager and provides a platform for industrial companies to reduce their energy consumption in the state of Maryland. As a result of these efforts, she reduces the carbon footprint which helps to maintain a cleaner, greener environment. She has also volunteered for numerous organizations in the political arena, arts and local organizations. These include the Annual Legislative Conference, Dallas Museum of Arts, Sisters for Charity, Louisville International Cultural Center, Big Brother and Big Sister Program and Habitat for America. She is especially excited to participant at this event because she is in the process of starting a foundation called G.E.M.S. which means Girls in Energy Management and Sustainability, to educate, promote, attract the interest of young women to pursue energy opportunities and advance their careers in STEM fields. Speaker: Justin Molineaux, Co-Founder, Chief Technology Officer, Baas Bikes Justin Molineaux is the Co-Founder & CTO of Baas Bikes - a startup that uses smartphones, bluetooth technology, geospatial analysis, and machine learning to create bikeshare systems from existing bike racks and ordinary bikes. Prior to Baas Bikes, Justin’s career has spanned academia - where he built data visualization tools to support bioinformatics research at Virginia Tech, government - where he designed and built computer systems for NASA and the FCC, and the private sector - where most notably he led engineering teams for the nation’s largest online retailer of custom apparel, CustomInk. With each new experience throughout his career in STEM, Justin has witnessed a consistent trend: diverse teams tend to produce better results than non-diverse teams. It is this trend that has compelled him to become an advocate for more inclusive education and hiring in STEM fields.
