The program also includes an exercise where students will reflect on their own personal barriers and come up with solutions on how to overcome obstacles and become change-makers in their prospective fields. The panel will include Dodger Manager Dave Roberts, Dodger Research & Development Manager Megan Schroeder, Coca-Cola North America Vice President of Latin Affairs Peter Villegas and NASA Sr. Project Planner/Scheduler Jeffrey Slade.
