On September 16, the NDC Carolinas will host the 2016 North Carolina Women in Leadership Symposium at the Rho Building in Chapel Hill, NC. This event will bring together a diverse mix of successful women who, through the discussion of topics relevant to today’s issues, will educate, inspire and encourage their peers to reflect on their own goals as they strive to advance within their organizations. The theme of this year’s symposium is “Secure Your Place at the Table.”

“The Women in Leadership Symposium is a great platform for local female executives to discuss the unique challenges that women face climbing the corporate ladder, as well as share the strategies they have developed to achieve success,” said Dennis Kennedy, Founder & Chair of the National Diversity Council.

This half-day event will offer a panel discussion that will delve into a variety of topics, such as “Becoming a Person of Influence,” “Finding and Owning Your Voice,” and “Positioning Yourself for the Next Big Opportunity.” Participants include business professionals, entrepreneurs, non-profit organization representatives, and scholars. Following the discussions, participants will have the opportunity to share their thoughts in an open question and answer session. Speakers include:
