Are you a woman at the helm of your enterprise? You may have noticed you are not alone here at the Polsky Exchange. Please join this member-driven session to convene female founders and supporters! Let’s explore how we can take our ventures to the next level with the support of fellow female founders.
This month’s discussion will be led by Tammera L. Holmes, a strong advocate for youth in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. In 2008, Holmes founded AeroStar Consulting Corporation to begin opening doors for youth in a career field that for most is still very foreign. Her focus is to get more African Americans, women, and other undeserved and underrepresented populations interested in Aviation STEM careers. Growing up in the crime-ridden Maywood suburb of Chicago, Tammera understands the impact the current climate in Chicago has on young peoples’ ability to expect greatness beyond what they see. In 2016, she established the AeroStar Avion Institute to promote philanthropy in Aviation and Aerospace education. Her AeroStars programs are literally giving “Wings to Dreams.”
