Celeste Ford, Founder and Board Chair of Stellar Solutions, Inc., a global aerospace engineering services leader, will be honored with the inaugural Silicon Valley “Woman of Wisdom” Award by the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce.
She will accept the award at the organization’s annual Athena Awards luncheon on November 7, 2019 at the Garden Court Hotel.
The Silicon Valley “Woman of Wisdom” Award was established by the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce to recognize a distinguished professional whose exceptional career serves as an inspiration for others in her field.
“Celeste Ford reflects the innovation and entrepreneurship ethos of Silicon Valley. She carved out a career as an aerospace engineer when few women were in the field. She has developed a thriving, internationally-recognized company. And she is dedicated to expanding the role of young women in STEM. Taken together, she is an icon of inspiration to our city and the nation,” said Judy Kleinberg, President of the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber Foundation.
