Physician, NASA astronaut and scientist Mae Carol Jemison headlines Lesley University’s weeklong Creativity Forum, which features renowned guest speakers such as choreographer Twyla Tharp, psychologist Daniel Goleman and educator Pedro Noguera.

Dr. Jemison was the first woman of color to travel in space when she went into orbit aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor in 1992. She advocates for the need to diversify STEM fields and foster collaboration between the sciences and the arts, and through her foundation The Earth We Share (TEWS), children from around the world share ideas about how to solve current global issues.

The Lesley Creativity Forum examines the important role of creativity across all disciplines, and all of the events are free and open to the public.
