WeLEAD: Perspectives from Pioneers

On Wednesday, November 14, WeLEAD hosted Perspectives from Pioneers.

The evening featured special guest Anne Wexler of Wexler & Walker Public Policy Associates about her climb to the top. Recognized as one of Washington’s 10 most powerful lobbyists by the Washingtonian Magazine, Wexler shared her experiences and triumphs to making it to the top in a man’s world. Wexler explained the path she took to becoming the most powerful female lobbyist in Washington and gave the participants advice on achieving such success. After her address, Ms. Wexler was gracious enough to field questions from the participants.

The evening also provided participants and Young Women Leaders Board members with an opportunity to socialize and network, one of the keys to making it to the top in this city.

WeLEAD participants will learn more about networking and other professional development skills at the December training.

Special thanks to Christina Mulvihill, Director of Government and Public Affairs, Sony Corporation of America for providing the location and catering for the event.
