Race car driver Milka Duno will be on campus on Wednesday to speak about the importance of women and Latinos entering the field of engineering. Duno, who has four master's degrees in engineering, took up racing in 1998 after attending a Porsche driving clinic. The Venezuelan native and resident of Miami was the first Latina to qualify and race in the Indianapolis 500, and in 2007 placed second in the 24 hours of Daytona, the best finish ever by a female driver in the event's 45-year history. Off the track, she is committed to promoting education and has written a children's book on the subject. She will speak from 3 to 4 p.m. in Building 17, room 2640, and will tour the engineering labs afterward.
