Thank you to the host Willis Towers Watson:
Congratulations Executive Leadership Graduates!
You have joined the ranks of over 1,000 talented women executives who took the important step of asking how they could become even more effective and dynamic leaders.
It's a bold step, really. Developing a strong self-awareness takes humility to ask the right questions - and courage to act based on what you learn.
We've heard from Executive Leadership graduates like yourself that they would like to continue to invest in themselves, keep learning and stay in contact with other graduates. In response, Inforum has formed an Executive Leadership Alumnae Affinity Group.
Attend to connect with Executive Leadership graduates and participate in continued strategic connections and leadership development dialogue.
