Barbara Bell, Ed.D., Capt. U.S. Navy (ret), a female pioneer, talks about soaring through turbulent times and shares lessons she learned as a Naval Flight Officer. Flying helped Barbara view the world differently. And, as one of the first woman to graduate from the US Naval Academy and the US Naval Test Pilot School, her perspective from up above prepared her to empower the next generation of female leaders. Furthermore, in 1992, she and fellow aviators went to Capitol Hill to help successfully repeal the combat exclusions laws, opening up combat aircraft and ships to women in the services. And, she’s happy to report that women now fly unrestricted in the services.
Dr. Bell holds a BS in systems engineering from the United States Naval Academy, an MS in astronautical engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School, an MA in theology from Marylhurst University, and a Doctorate in Education from Vanderbilt University. Now, she’s a professor of leadership at Vanderbilt University where she is inspiring the next generation of leaders for our world
