Pioneering astronaut Mae Jemison to receive her own LEGO 

One (very) small step for womankind! MAE JEMISON, the first African-American woman in space, has been immortalized in Lego form along with four other female NASA pioneers. The “Women of NASA” set, as it will be known, is a celebration of the critical roles women like Jemison played in the U.S. space program. "Excited to be part of such a great group of women," Jemison tweeted after the announcement, "And even more jazzed about women in STEM!" Mae Jemison overcame immense obstacles to become an astronaut, and her accomplishments were most recently praised across media platforms and throughout America’s schools this Black History Month and Women’s History Month. In two projects that went viral—one organized by the Girls Scouts in honor of Women’s History Month and one by a kindergartner for Black History Month young girls dressed up as Jemison in celebration of her as a civil rights icon and female role model. With Jemison continuing to share her empowering and inspiring message with audiences nationwide—from STEM Symposiums to jam-packed Speakers Series—there is no doubt she will continue to make an impact on future generations.

Captain Sullenberger delivers powerful message on leadership at SAS Global Forum

Famed “Miracle on the Hudson” pilot CAPTAIN SULLENBERGER kicked off the SAS Global Forum with a “rousing” keynote on innovation and true leadership. A premier multinational workplace, SAS’ annual Global Forum attracts over 1,200 executive level customers from across industries, offering transformative insights and leadership strategies with a focus on the power of data and analytics to drive decision making. As the opening keynote, Captain Sullenberger set the bar high, encouraging rapt audience members to lead by example: “You have to be willing and able to check your ego at the door.” Sullenberger also stressed the importance of innovation and adaptability— “Change before you’re forced to, by competition, by regulation, or by circumstance, and the more and quicker that you’re able to change the more it can become a competitive advantage”—delivering countless memorable lines and takeaways. The informative and inspiring speech came just days after Sullenberger delivered another powerful keynote at the Cox Media Group Leadership Conference, and both appearances had the tweets pouring in:  “Goosebumps. We just heard from Capt. "Sully" Sullenberger at #CMGLC2017. Now that is leadership in crisis.”

Jimmy Wales launches revolutionary news platform, Wikitribune

Wikipedia founder JIMMY WALES has launched Wikitribune, an ad-free global news platform that aims to address the idea that “the news is broken and we can fix it.” In a video that describes the goal of the game-changing site, Wales explains how the digitalization of journalism and reliance on advertisers has led to a rapid decrease in the quality of the news. Wikitribune will address these issues, pairing professional standards-based journalism with a team of dedicated community contributors and a crowdfunded business model, ensuring articles are fact-checked and un-biased, sources are transparent, and users have the ability to flag and contribute to the articles they read.  Instantly making headlines on virtually every major news site, from The BBC and CNBC to TIME and Fox, Wales’ new project will revolutionize the world just as Wikipedia—the world’s fifth most visited website—did 16 years ago. As citizens’ demand for reliable, fact-based journalism grows ever-louder amid increasingly uncertain and polarized political times, Jimmy Wales is at the forefront of innovation, addressing concerns and blazing a path forward that will reshape news media.
