March 28, 2019 –
GE Engineer- turned-author, Michael Davi, will present an overview of his new book, “PrivileGEd – Experiences From My Unusual 40-Year Career with One of America’s Most Iconic Companies”.
Davi's family history with GE dates back nearly a century, starting with his Italian immigrant grandparents. In this memoir, Davi explores his own story as a professional with General Electric. Utilizing photos and graphics, Davi outlines how life afforded him opportunities his grandparents and parents did not have. Uncanny coincidences abound as do unusual work circumstances, fascinating characters, global adventure, and drama, creating an inspiring tale which the author hopes will prove inspirational to others.
Michael A. Davi was professionally employed by General Electric for 40 years. As the first in his family to graduate college, earning an engineering degree, Davi’s education opened doors of opportunity he never dreamed possible, including working with top experts at GE. Now retired, Davi has authored his first book, "PrivileGEd" to document his story. In addition to inspiring a new generation to consider STEM careers, he also hopes to motivate others to tell their stories as well.
