Women became 50% of America's college graduates in the early 80's. Then why do women account for only 21 of the Fortune 500 chief executive officers today?
USI Insurance Services is encouraging women to take the lead and "Lean In" to reach personal and professional success.
Inspired by the book, Lean In, and subsequent movement spearheaded by Facebook's Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, this event will feature:
- A keynote address by businesswoman, entrepreneur and philanthropist Silda Wall Spitzer (Pictured at right)
- Moderated panel discussion with women of influence
- Complimentary breakfast buffet
Women and men, don't miss this opportunity to hear directly from powerful female leaders who will share their firsthand knowledge of what it takes to reach the top! Also learn why it is important to diversify your workforce and encourage varying perspectives to better serve your target audiences.
Silda Wall Spitzer has held leadership positions in the private, non-profit and public sectors and has spoken publicly on many issues. She is a Principal at NewWorld Capital Group, a private equity firm investing in environmental opportunities, including energy efficiency, clean energy, water, waste-to-value and environmental services.
