Join Strong Women, Strong Girls for a Women's Leadership Breakfast at Loomis Sayles. Our mission is to cultivate strong mentorship relationships between pre-adolescent girls, college women, and professional women and part of that process is developing our own leadership capabilities. This substantive morning will focus on what it means to be a leader and how to be one. Laura Stone, one of our speakers, will prompt us to consider our individual purpose and how to best achieve it as a leader—along with sharing insights from her new book. Come for some coffee and networking at 8am until 8:30 when the program will commence. If you're interested in sponsoring a table, which is 10 people, please contact Ana Goodenberger, firstname.lastname@example.org.
