EmpowHer Spotlight on Honorable LaDoris ‘Dot’ Harris 2014Â Pathmaker Award Honoree-EmpowHer is excited to be highlighting the incredible women we will be honoring at this yearâ€™s Girls to Greatness Pathmaker Awards Luncheon on April 26th at the Beverly Hills Hotel! This month we are highlighting the Honorable LaDoris Harris, Director of the Office of Economic Impact and Diversity, United States Department of Energy. Ms. Harris has many commendable qualities, demonstrated by her innumerable contributions to the community. EmpowHer has chosen Ms. Harris as an honoree specifically because of her incredible passion and commitment to bringing more awareness and engagement for women and girls in the area of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
â€œOver the years, mentoring has become my greatest joy. There are many blessings when you sincerely commit yourself to helping others achieve their dreams. A special interest I have is promoting the growth of STEM, particularly for minorities and women and girls. The lack of STEM education and jobs in this country is hindering economic growth and jeopardizing national security. My lifetime experiences and expertise have equipped me to accept one of my greatest leadership challenges yet: leading an initiative to increase STEM awareness and engagement of women and minorities in communities across the country.â€ – Hon.
