More specifically, Ms. Polito shared insight about her work to provide a safe place for women through a pilot program that is designed to assist homeless women fleeing domestic violence. “Many individuals find themselves in violent places. To gain stability, they need to leave it. They need a support network around them,” Polito said “The main focus is on individuals. It is to make sure when they find themselves in a place of homelessness due to domestic violence, there is a rapid response.”...
She also discussed her initiatives with STEM and getting females and minorities involved and aware at a young age, the current work currently being done to build up individual communities through the Community Compact campaign, and the status of innovation in the Commonwealth; specifically how do we maintain our reputation and keep up with new technology?
