Dr. Pamela McCauley Bush will be interviewed on the Peggy Smedley Show on September 10th as part of National Preparedness Month. She will also be presenting at the Women of Color in STEM Conference on October 17 - 19th in Dallas, Texas.

Dr. Bush calls on her personal “life storms” as well as her National Science Foundation funded research in high consequence disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes to create an enlightening and empowering message in the "Unexpected Storm." She shares inspirational stories of survival and compares the response of an emergency management organization to that of an individual (or family) as she shares the “mechanics” of survival for a community or individual and the common elements in the process to recover and thrive after any unexpected storm.

Dr. Bush also provides in-depth discussion of ergonomics, safety and health in occupational environments, particularly manufacturing environments such as those in developing nations in her "From High Winds to High Fashion: The Ergonomics, Biomechanics & Safety Features of Occupational & Manufacturing Environments & Products" talk.

Her technical topics cover the discussion of ergonomics and biomechanical applications in the design and evaluation of products and equipment from cell phones to automobiles and equipment used by agencies from the Department of Defense to clothing manufacturers.

In "Innovation Nation: The Critical Impact of Innovation on Individuals, Nations and the Global Society," Dr. Bush shares the historic impact of innovation, today’s innovation opportunities, and research-based successful strategies for individuals and organizations to propel their actions into useful products and services, globally and collaboratively.

Heralded as an award-winning educator, innovator and engineering role model, Dr. Pamela McCauley Bush fires up and empowers students and professionals of all ages to pursue Science, Math, Engineering and Technology educational paths and successful STEM careers in "Why a STEM Education? Making STEM the Career of Choice!" presentation. She shares practical advice and guidance on navigating the educational landscape intertwined with her personal stories of overcoming academic and professional adversity and challenges.

Dr. Pamela McCauley Bush educates individuals, corporations, universities, institutions and STEM-related organizations on how to “walk the talk,” going beyond “leaning in,” to begin real change across the board immediately through "Women in Leadership." Her recently published (ELSEVIER Academic Press) Transforming Your STEM Career Through Leadership and Innovation: Inspiration and Strategies for Women is the research-based foundation for this keynote address and a must-have guide for anyone wishing or needing to develop leadership skills. Dr. Bush includes a series of encouraging, humorous and empowering examples and guidelines designed to support the leader as she develops and excels in a corporation, institution, government, and community.

Dr. Bush is a nationally recognized speaker, entrepreneur, author and tenured Professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Systems at the University of Central Florida where she leads the Human Factors in Disaster Management Research Team. She is the Chief Technology Officer of Bush Enterprises, specializing in engineering, technology and manufacturing services. She is also the author of Ergonomics: Foundational Principles, Applications, and Technologies, Winners Don't Quit . . . Today They Call Me Doctor, as well as the new Transforming Your STEM Career Through Leadership and Innovation: Inspiration and Strategies for Women.
