The Smith School will celebrate its fifth annual Women Leading Women event with a panel discussion featuring the four previous honorees, who will all return to campus in spring 2016.
Joyce Russell, Smith’s senior associate dean of learning, will moderate the discussion on women in leadership roles.
“Women Leading Women is really about the Smith School working to empower more women to get into C-suite roles and empower more younger women to want to get a degree in business,” says Sharon Lewis, senior director of women and diversity programs at Smith and lead organizer of the event.
Panelists will include 2015 honoree Andrea Brody ’87, senior vice president of global marketing at BravoSolution; 2014 honoree Brenda Freeman ’87, MBA ’91, chief marketing officer at National Geographic U.S. Networks; 2013 honoree Kristen Welch ’90, MBA ’96, senior vice president of global content operations at Discovery Communications; and 2012 honoree Lisa Anders, MBA ’95, vice president of business development at McKissack & McKissack. /CH/
