Women in Leadership panel discussion // release of Sally Ride postage stamp

Women in Leadership panel discussion marks release of Sally Ride postage stamp

Panel Members' Photos

Sally Ride blasted off aboard shuttle Challenger on June 18, 1983 to become the first American woman—and, at 32, the youngest American—in space. She flew on Challenger again in 1984 and later was the only person to serve on both panels investigating the nation’s space shuttle disasters—the Challenger explosion in 1986 and the breakup of Columbia in 2003.

To celebrate the release of a U.S. postage stamp honoring the pioneering astronaut, three trailblazing women will sit down together May 23 for a conversation on Women in Leadership hosted by Sally Ride Science at UC San Diego.

The three women taking part in the panel discussion, who were all close friends of Ride, are:

  • Billie Jean King, tennis legend and champion of social change
  • Ellen Ochoa, first Hispanic woman in space and director of Johnson Space Center
  • Condoleezza Rice, 66th U.S. Secretary of State

With journalist and author Lynn Sherr serving as moderator, they will share their personal stories and their vision for how women can help lead our nation to a better future.
