GW@MIT Leadership Conference: Keynote Address by Sophie Vandebroek
Dr. Sophie Vandebroek, CTO of Xerox and President of the Xerox Innovation Group, delivered the keynote address at the Leadership Conference on November 8, 2010, organized by Graduate Women at MIT (GW@MIT). Dr. Vandebroek is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers and a Fulbright Fellow. She holds 12 US patents, is a member of the Board of Directors of Analogic Corporation, of Nypro Corporation, and is a member of The US National Academies Committee on Science, Technology & Law.
In this video, Dr. Vandebroek details her journey from the time when, as a young girl, she watched the moon landing on television and dreamed of becoming an astronaut or scientist, to her days at Cornell, where she met her husband, and on through her professional journey, which includes conducting business in research and technology at Xerox for 14 years before becoming the new CTO and President. She spends ample time discussing what it's like, as a woman, to juggle many commitments while fostering innovation and strong business relationships.
