This event has reached capacity.

Women In Business Affinity Group

There have been many advances for women in the last 30 years from education to professional opportunities. Recent research shows that when there are women in high-level leadership positions and in the boardroom, the organization flourishes and the bottom line is positively affected. So why aren’t there more women at the top? These dynamic panelists will reflect on the topic and share their personal and professional experiences.

Panelsists include:
Leslie Kendrick (Moderator), Senior Lecturer, Center for Leadership Education, Johns Hopkins University
Sara K. Abiusi, '96, Partner, Accenture
Marta Brito Pérez, '01, Senior Corporate Officer and Vice President Human Resources, Adventist HealthCare
Cheryl Miller, Director, Government Relations, Verizon
