Nicole Contos Liakeas
Over the past 10 years Philo4Thought Hellenic Professional Mentoring Initiative has had the honor to collaborate with many prominent Hellenic organizations, including the Hellenic Medical Society of New York, Hellenic Professional Women, the Hellenic American Bankers Association, the Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and other affiliates to identify notable professionals to speak at our annual conference. Our 2019 "Women in S.T.E.M." panel features professional women who have made great strides in the advancement of
their chosen field in addition to being active and vibrant members of the Hellenic community, embracing the concept of Philotimo (φιλότιμο) in a meaningful way to have a positive impact in the lives of others. Each panelist selected shares the spirit and compassion to persevere, and the heart to share their knowledge and experience with others. They are excellent role models to current and future generations and we are proud to share their stories with you.
