This event was held to promote the launch of the Center of Women in Business that is designed to expand knowledge of how women excel in different types of organizations and the business imperative for unleashing their potential.  During the event, the Center’s research partner, the Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, presented its findings on the status of women in small and medium size corporations to complement what is already known about their status in Fortune 500 companies. Georgetown’s presentation was followed by a panel discussion on how to unleash the potential of women in business and a keynote speech on the importance of gender diversity in driving an organization’s success.
