Chapters: St. Louis








In October, the St. Louis Chapter of BDPA hosted its annual Night with the CIO at Harris Stowe State University. Dr. Cheryl Watkins-Moore, Director at BioSTL moderated the night’s panel discussion. The night’s panelists were Mary Heger, CIO at Ameren Services, and Lina Young, CIO at Peabody Energy.

The evening started with light appetizers and networking. There were several students in attendance from Harris Stowe’s school of business, as well as, STEM representatives of multiple disciplines. The students came ready with their questions and those currently in STEM fields were more than happy to help with their guidance. The room buzzed as people went from table to table and person to person greeting old friends, as well as, making new associates. The excitement and energy was palpable. It took a couple of announcements to get everyone’s attention to navigate to the room where the panel discussion would begin.

The discussion itself was a robust and intriguing blend of experiences, trends, projections, and education. Our moderator, being a leader in the STEM field herself, provided the panelists with relevant and thought provoking topics to discuss, as well as, provided her own experience and insight. The theme of the discussion was enabling digital thought leadership and the guidance was given to all to understand your business and find solutions for gaps where you are

Both Lina and Mary provided wonderful tips and guidance on how to navigate the STEM fields, as well as, how to grow within those respective fields. The audience listened intently during the discussion, actively participated during Q&A, and displayed gratitude as the event concluded. BDPA members and guests represented well at this event. The number of attendees was up from last year’s count and would hope to see this trend continue.

We are grateful to Harris Stowe for allowing us to use their beautiful facilities and hosting the event. We are also appreciative of our moderator Dr. Watkins-Moore for her excellent facilitation. Furthermore, we owe our gratitude to our panelists Mary Heger and Lina Young for their enlightenment and education.
