Dr. Cindy Lawley spent the last 14 years within Illumina, Inc helping commercialize low cost genotyping and sequencing solutions and consulting for startups leveraging genetics.  She will talk to us about her experiences driving corporate success through scientific collaborations and challenge us to ponder the question In What Ways Are You a Product of Your Education/Environment?

She comes to RAIN with a diverse background including roles as animal behaviorist, high school teacher, professional scuba diver, marine biologist, kelp forest ecologist, university instructor, lab manager, and conservation geneticist (pause for breath).  Cindy is passionate about advocacy, holding several scientific advisory board positions in STEM non-profits, and identifies strongly as a STEM mentor and coach for women in the sciences.
