We are excited that U of M’s Dr. Tina Greenfield, the Consulate’s nominee for the Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) exchange program, will travel this weekend to the United States.
Tina is a good friend of the Consulate and an amazing role model. Her work on ancient Assyrian and Middle Eastern cultures is not only very cool, but extremely timely as well. Tina’s work puts her at the forefront of preserving some of humanity’s earliest and most important history, which is, unfortunately under threat from ISIS.
Congratulations Tina. We know you are going to do the University of Manitoba and the Consulate proud!
