On May 14, 2015, the Women's Forum for Achievement of Faegre Baker Daniels hosted an exclusive leadership event for women in Indianapolis. More than 85 local women attended, developing personal strategies to reach new leadership horizons and networking with peers.
Executive women nationally will share this half-day experience as it travels across FaegreBD's U.S. locations over the next two years.
Author, speaker and consultant Sally Helgesen presented a workshop on "The Female Vision: Women's Real Power at Work" - the competitive advantage of women's perspectives in today's global marketplace. Sally used original content, interactive exercises and powerful case studies to provide concrete, actionable practices for women seeking the next level of leadership.
The program concluded with inspirational remarks and a toast to strong women by Andrea Roberts Pierson, one of five women members of FaegreBD's 15-person management board.
"I will use the insights gained to further my career, position myself appropriately inside my company and improve my networking skills."
-Patty Hebenstreit, General Counsel, MDwise Inc.
"It was a great environment for networking and comfortable to hear and engage with Sally. Thank you for bringing this valuable information to women professionals!"
-Linda Hajduk, Executive Coach, Starla West International
"This seminar was much more valuable and "real" than some similar seminars I've attended for women."
-Lisa Etter, Senior Manager of Marketing Services, National FFA Organization
"I liked the combination of presentation and interaction — it was so powerful to hear women share their own stories as well."
-Alison Loughran, Client Strategy Manager, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
FaegreBD lawyers Shaun Clifford, Anne Ricchiuto, Amie Peele Carter, Jessica Benson Cox, Roz Fulgoni-Britton, Janelle Blankenship and Kayla Britton led organization of the Indianapolis event.
