Title: #WomenInSTEM: Identifying an Opportunity for Change

Karen Lefkowitz remembers being the only woman in the room thirty years ago at a conference when she started her career off as a computer programmer. Karen is a firm supporter of mentors and states that women, no matter whether they're in science or any other career, should ask for someone to mentor them. Karen is currently Vice President of Business Transformation at Pepco Holdings, Inc. She is responsible for the deployment of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) meters, a Department of Energy funded project, in Delaware, DC and Maryland. The meters have a two-way wireless communication that provides hourly consumption data at the premise allowing customers to take control of their energy use.
