Voice of the Faculty
"The development seminar was a *wonderful* experience, and one that I would highly recommend to other women. It provided me the opportunity to meet many interesting women with similar career interests and who faced similar challenges. The faculty were highly accomplished and fascinating people with very different backgrounds, including public speaking, politics, healthcare administration and etiquette gurus. All of them had unique and important lessons to teach, and all of them were very effective teachers. I took away from the conference a renewed motivation for academic advancement and a better understanding of what drives me from within at the most fundamental level.
I’m very grateful for having had the opportunity to attend this conference, and I would be happy to share more if anyone is interested.
Thank you for this opportunity."
