Peirce Career Development Services Presents Women in Leadership Event

Have you ever wondered how highly successful women balance work, life, and family? Now is your chance to find out. This month, as part of the 150th anniversary, we celebrate women in leadership and invite you to join us for our annual Women in Leadership event on March 12th.


 The event, sponsored by TD Bank, is an excellent opportunity to network with Philadelphia employers and hear from industry leaders about how they have achieved success. This year, our panelists will include: 
  • Jeanie Heffernan, SVP, Human Resources at Independence Blue Cross
  • Markita Louis, SVP Community Affairs and General Counsel at Clarifi
  • Tammy Pollard, Director, HR Learning and Organizational Development, AmeriHealth Caritas
  • Amber Racine, Immediate Past President  at Raynes McCarty-Attorney & Barrister's Association & Co-Chair at Philadelphia Bar Association’s Women in the Profession Committee
  • Jannet Walker, Deputy Program Director, Management Processes at Philadelphia International Airport
While numbers from 2013 indicated that only about 15% of CEO and leadership positions were occupied by women, there is plenty of evidence that these numbers are on the rise. In a recent McKinsey study of 60 major corporations, women made up 27% of vice presidents, 24% of senior vice presidents, and nearly 20% of CEO-level executives. If you’ve ever asked how they did it or thought about how you can achieve the same level of success, this event is for you. 

The Women in Leadership event will be held at Peirce on Thursday, March 12th from 5:30 – 7:30 in rooms 51 & 52. Tickets are free, but seats are limited. Learn more and register here.
