Fireside Chat About Lewis Latimer

Dentons Smart Cities & Connected Communities Think Tank - Inclusion Equity and Justice pillar is delighted to host a discussion with PUF Editor-in-Chief Steve Mitnick and Paula Gold Williams (President and CEO, CPS Energy) about Lewis Latimer, the original “hidden figure,” working alongside Thomas Edison on some of the most impactful inventions of the modern era, and the challenges of being the sole African American at the apex of the nation's commerce during the many setbacks on the road to racial equality. Dentons and CPS sponsored the free distribution of the book throughout our industry and jump-started the PUF Latimer Scholarship Fund for young African American women and men. As did FirstEnergy, Xcel Energy, Guidehouse and Energy Impact Partners.
