Coricka White is making history, and it’s pretty sweet.

The engineer with a master’s in business administration is the first Black woman to manage Domino Sugar’s 100-year old refinery in Baltimore. Trailblazing is just part of the job for White, who hopes her new title will encourage more women and women of color into engineering leadership roles.
