The Spelman Messenger Features Alumnae Under 40

Fierce and Fabulous Spelman Women

Spelman women are leaders, women of influence, innovators and problem solvers. Here is just a sampling of stories about alumnae under 40 who have effectively made changes in their fields, in their communities and around the world. 

*This is just an excerpt from the list which originally appeared in the fall edition of the Messenger magazine. Additional alumnae profiles listed in the publication will be added the week of Dec. 3. 

Diondria Whitehead Is Putting the Self Driving Car on the Map

Physics major, Diondria Whitehead, C’2015, opted to go directly to work in industry after graduating from Spelman. She is currently an autonomous vehicle operations specialist with the Google Self Driving Car Project (which is now called WayMo) in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Whitehead, who studied theoretical and mathematical physics while at Spelman, believes she is enjoying the best of both worlds; or as she likes to say, “When your Alma Mater and your job are both winning!”
