Dr. Wendy Wintersteen, President of Iowa State University. Upon her appointment last month by the Iowa Board of Regents, she became the first woman president in the university’s history.

"I think oftentimes women don't have the confidence. They sit back and think, 'Oh, that's not for me. I'm not well enough prepared for that. Somebody else can do that better.' Women should lean into opportunities. When the door is open, they should say 'yes.'"
