05.06.13
 
On May 2, Johnson Space Center team members came together to listen and learn from two speakers, Colleen Barrett, president emeritus for Southwest Airlines, and Udaya Patnaik, founder of Jump Associates, who have both furthered the creative concepts behind Innovation 2013 within their respective companies. The Innovation 2013 kick-off event gave participants a chance to share their vision for JSC 2.0 and create, collaborate and connect with one another. Along with a suggestion box, there were white boards and post-it notes for people to scribble down their thoughts and ideas for making JSC an even better place to work.
