A Colloquium on Women and Technology
NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, CA.
Marta Bohn-Meyer (aeronautical and flight systems engineer) is chief engineer at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, CA., which she joined in 1979.
Previously at Dryden she held the positions of director for flight operations, director of safety and mission assurance, and deputy director for aerospace projects and project manager for the F-16 XL Supersonic Laminar Flow Control project. Recipient of the B.S. degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic in aeronautical engineering, she became the first female crewmember from NASA or the Air Force, and the second woman to fly in one of the triple-sonic SR-71s. Bohn-Meyer has lectured widely on the role of women in high tech engineering workforces.
In "A New Bill of Rights: Right Place, Right Time, Right Qualifications, Right Enthusiasm" Bohn-Meyer will draw from history and personal experiences and observations to develop a model of success for women who have chosen (or hope to choose) careers in the technology workforce.
