SE Virginia B. Andes
Virginia’s story isn’t typical of a woman who was born in 1919. Virginia B. Andes graduated from Kent University, joined IBM Corporation in 1944, initially working inside a “Tent City” in Endicott, NY on punch card equipment during WWII. In an era where few women broke into professional positions, Virginia broke through that glass ceiling working her way up to senior systems engineer. Virginia was a visionary philanthropist. Listen to her story told through people who knew her well, Laura Amendola, financial planner and friend, and Suzanne Roberts, Exec. Director of Virginia B Andes Volunteer Community Clinic. Because of Virginia’s vision her legacy impacts people daily.
