The Engagement, Diversity & Inclusion offices hosted another virtual panel discussion as a part of the “Together Strong – Life Unites” Series on May 10. This month’s discussion focused on navigating through change.

The panel included Keisha Pexton, director of Trades Training; Veronica Speller, Information Technology manager; Lewis Fisher, Production Planning and Scheduling manager; Tom Cosgrove, Corporate Citizenship and Government Relations manager; and Dakota Cunningham, a finance analyst for the Virginia-Class Submarine Program.

Panelists shared their thoughts on navigating changes. “Managing change is like playing chess. You have to think ahead,” Pexton said.
