Brockton, MA –Massasoit Community College kicked off Women’s History Month on March 4, 2013 with their annual Women’s History Month Luncheon hosted by the Women’s Resource Center and the President’s Community Advisory Council under the leadership of the Office of Institutional Diversity.

Faculty, staff, and students gathered to hear Dr. Tala Khudairi, Dean of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics at Roxbury Community College deliver a talk entitled “Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination: Celebrating Women in STEM”. Dr. Khudairi delivered an inspiring address, taking the audience on a journey through her life, which many students there could relate to; a single mother working, raising a family & attending college because she wanted to secure a successful life for her family. She highlighted her work in the STEM field which includes international work in both research and education. In closing, Dr. Khudairi asked those gathered to think about what they can do to inspire young women to pursue their dreams and to consider a career in the STEM fields.
