More than 50 people attended the Women Changing the Globe event, held Nov. 18, to hear from GW alumni and current students on the leadership role that women play in our global society, the gender equity challenges that they face and the opportunities they have to change the world around them.
The event, hosted by GW MBA Admissions in the Office of Graduate Programs, included speakers such as Sandy Seiber, MPP ’81, consultant with the Spectrum Group and former director of the Army Contracting Agency; Denise de Bombelles, MBA, ’98, of Federal Home Loan Banks (FHLB) Office of Finance; Cassandra de Souza, a first-year GWSB Global MBA student; and Janet Marchibroda, MBA, ’95, of the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The panel was moderated by Jennifer Spencer, Coelho Professorial Fellow and associate professor of international business at GWSB.
“Women in the working world today have more challenges than ever. Learning about what opportunities are available for enhancing education as well as meeting other successful women and hearing how they accomplished their career goals is an invaluable opportunity. Networking and sharing experiences can be a key factor in taking the next career steps,” Seiber said.
