Our keynote speaker this Tuesday will be Sheri Donahue. Sheri recently held the position of, Cyber Security Strategic Partnerships Director at Humana and is now pursuing her lifelong dream of running for office, in her bid for KY State Senate Dist 36.  She believes it’s time for women to bring their talents and experience to government leadership.

Sheri is a big picture, strategic thinker and connector.  She has been involved in security related fields most of her career, her favorite role being in Naval Intelligence.  She has been actively involved with InfraGard for over 7 years and served as National President of InfraGard National Members Alliance (2012 – 2015). A 16 year civilian Navy engineer and Purdue Engineering Graduate.

After Sheri’s talk we will have a short panel discussion from other Phenomenal Women & A Few Good Men, who advocate & support women’s leadership – sharing insights on working and surviving in a male dominated industry.

Firas Hamza, Digital Transformation Executive at Microsoft will be a part of our panel.  He is one of the brightest, kindest human’s we know.  We have had many discussion on women’s leadership, and how it is growing and changing in Kentucky. With friends like Firas, the road ahead will be much easier than the road from which we came. For someone who grew up on a country where women’s struggle for equality has even MORE miles to go, Firas has always been one of our biggest advocates, and for him, we are grateful.

Dawn Yankeelov, President of TALK (Technology Association of Louisville Kentucky) will share a few highlights from her recent CompTia DC Fly-in.
