international womens day 2018In celebration of International Women’s Day, we asked the women and men at Natracare HQ to tell us about an outstanding woman who inspires them! Here are some of the women we love!

Katherine Johnson: I recently watched Hidden Figures and was so inspired by the story of Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who worked at NASA from the 1950s until her retirement in the 1980s. During those early years Katherine faced a double discrimination of both racial segregation and working in a male-dominated field. Her story of overcoming these massive obstacles, and proving her intelligence and abilities in the field of mathematics, computer science and aerospace, is one that everyone should know.
