SPIE Women in Optics Planner Aims to Inspire Careers in Science and Technology

Produced annually, the planner is available at no charge from SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.

STEM is, “the most exciting career path imaginable,” says contributor Susan Tousi, vice president of engineering at Illumina, a developer and supplier of tools and integrated systems for large-scale analysis of genetic variation and function.

Because science and engineering are driving the future, Tousi says, the best and brightest minds are needed: “Many of my highest technical contributors have been women. We must make use of this rich talent base to make our dreams of the future a reality.”

Women interviewed in the planner say that inspiration to pursue STEM careers has come from parents, teachers, and other mentors:

  •     Allison Lami Sawyer, CEO and cofounder of Rebellion Photonics, says her inspiration came from a high-school calculus teacher who asked if she planned to study engineering. When Sawyer answered no, her teacher’s reply was, “Don't be stupid. You'd be a great
