Madeleine Albright, Former US Secretary of State, may have been one of the first to publicly encourage women to help other women, but she certainly isn’t the last. Join WIB for a lively panel discussion by Atlanta area women in corporate and academic leadership. These talented women will describe how they have helped other women succeed or how they themselves have been pulled up the ladder of success by women who already made it to the top. Opportunities for networking with our panelists before and after the presentation will be available. Refreshments will be provided, courtesy of Halyard Health, a medical technology company that provides healthcare solutions focused on preventing infection, eliminating pain, and speeding recovery.
