The latest Entrepreneurially Thinking podcast is live!
Persistent, Intellectually Curious, Courageous, Entrepreneurial, Innovative – these are all words used to describe folks that are Engineers according to our guests on this episode, Mr. Ronald Moore and Dr. Terrence Freeman, who represent the St. Louis Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers or NSBE. NSBE’s mission today is the same as it was over 40+ years ago—to help improve the recruitment and retention of black engineering students who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.
What’s even more exciting is their 43rd Annual NSBE Conference that will be held March 29-April 2nd in Kansas City MO. At events like these, they have had great speakers and notables such as Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Cruise Line; General Darren McDew, Transcom, Commander US Airforce; Richard Mark, CEO of AmerenUE Illinois; Lieutenant General Joseph Ballard; former Corps of Engineers Commander and many other community figures that attend and participate. Listen closely, maybe there’s someone you recognize!
