 Women as business leaders & entrepreneurs

Tuesday, April 25, 2017    7:00 - 8:45 p.m.

NPL's Multi-Purpose Room
Today more women are entrepreneurs or in senior management roles than ever before. Their experiences are often different from men when it comes to management, the path to leadership, and the impact of work/life balance. Join us for this inspiring session and hear the stories of four women who are leaders in their fields. Hear about their journeys to success, and the challenges they face in their careers.
