The first woman to be Managing Director of Wales’ largest industrial company – General Electric (GE) Aviation Wales, and now Director of Infrastructure Operations at Amazon Web Services, is set to inspire young women at an online event next month.
Organised by Chwarae Teg, the webinar will see La-Chun Lindsay, who is now based in the USA, share advice and the story of her impressive career path. Having held leading roles across the globe, La-Chun has also become one of the first three envoys appointed by Welsh Government to promote Wales to countries abroad.
The webinar takes place on Wednesday 10 February from 5.00pm-6.00pm. It will provide an opportunity for participants to put questions to La-Chun and find out about her journey into engineering, what led her to the corporate world, how she leads a successful team and her ambitions for the future.
Born and raised in Rock Hill, South Carolina, La-Chun attended Clemson University and graduated in 1995 with a B.S. degree in ceramic engineering. She has worked in a variety of industries including healthcare, aviation, transportation, media and financial services. La-Chun has received three honorary doctorates from Welsh universities as well as several global accolades for her work as an advocate for diversity and equality.
