"HIA-LI is proud to host a panel of successful women leaders willing and able to explore their success with our attendees in an open, honest discussion," says Terri Alessi-Miceli, President of HIA-LI. "The five women on our panel will provide a framework to guide women leaders to develop new strategies to determine where they are today, where they see themselves tomorrow, and what it will take to bridge that gap."
The panel moderated by Cooperperson, the "Woman Whisperer" and a thought leader on women's leadership topics, includes four women with interesting perspectives on life as a woman leader:
- Karen Brannen, "The Soothsayer" and CEO of Jefferson's Ferry Lifecare Retirement Community, offering perspectives on determining what is really important versus what you think is important.
- Nancy Engelhardt, "The Servant Leader" and director of The Energeia Partnership, discussing leadership as a service to others.
- Beverly Fortune, "The Connector" and publisher of Milieu magazine, focusing on ways women can do a better job of connecting and helping one another.
- Jackie Gernaey, "The Business Maven" and chief executive of The Alternative Board, discussing what women can do to achieve financial independence.
Four Questions Every Woman Leader Must Answer
"It's time to shift priorities and elevate professional performance by moving beyond conversations about work/life balance and breaking through the glass ceiling," says Cooperperson. She offered four questions for women leaders to answer as they enter 2014:
- What are your intentions and priorities?
- Is your ladder against the right wall?
- Do you have what you want and want what you have?
- Are you holding the money or is the money holding you?
The women's executive breakfast is sponsored by People's Alliance Federal Credit Union (PAFCU).
