March 12 - Long Island Trailblazers: Women in Defense

This Women's History Month, join WEDLI for an intimate conversation with two female trailblazers in the defense community!

Anne Shybunko-Moore is the CEO and Owner of GSE Dynamics, a woman-owned small business and U.S. Defense manufacturer, and a recognized leader in the Long Island business community.

Commander Grace Mehl (Ret.) retired from the Navy after 20 years of service, during which she received a Bronze Star and became one of the first women to embark in a Combat Logistics Force ship.

These incredible women will share their personal experiences and the leadership strategies that have enabled them to rise to the top of male-dominated fields. Learn about their career journeys, their successes and challenges, and what motivates them to keep pushing boundaries. You won't want to miss it!
