HERstory: “The Grit Factor” with Shannon Huffman Polson
January 14 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Shannon Huffman Polson sits down with Military Women’s Memorial President, Phyllis Wilson, to discuss her experience as a woman in the Military. At graduation from Duke University, Shannon was commissioned as a 2nd Lt. in Army Aviation where she became one of the first women to fly Apache helicopters, serving on three continents and leading two flight platoons and a line company. Following her service in the Army, Shannon joined the corporate world. Today, she is the founder of The Grit Institute and author of the new book The Grit Factor: Courage, Resilience, and Leadership in the Most Male-Dominated Organization in the World where she tells the tales of trailblazing women who learned to lead at the highest levels and how they overcame adversity and learned from their experiences.
