Published March 16, 2021

Newport News Shipbuilding’s Engagement and Diversity & Inclusion offices hosted another virtual panel discussion as a part of the “Together Strong – Life Unites” Series on March 8. This month’s discussion focused on inclusion and celebrating women.

The panel included Beth Silsdorf, Trades chief of staff; Jason Sutton, director of Structural Fabrication and Assembly; Cassandra Burks, manager of Non-nuclear Trades Training, Yesika Kain, Environmental Engineering manager; and Kathy Hansen, mechanical engineer who represented the Women in Shipbuilding Enterprise (WiSE) employee resource group.

Watch the panel discussion on MyNNS. No charge is provided. Employees who watch the video must do so on their own time.

Shipbuilders are invited to join the conversation on the second Monday of every month to learn and grow from each other’s experiences, embrace differences and create an impact together through awareness, education and action.
