The Women's Leadership Council's most visible event is the annual "Power of the Purse" luncheon. This year the luncheon will be Tuesday, June 26, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the University of Akron's Quaker Station.
Keynote Speaker will be Linda Tarr-Whelan, a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the progressive think tank Demos. She was Ambassador to the UN Commission on the Status of Women in the Clinton Administration, was Deputy Assistant to President Jimmy Carter for Women's Concerns and was named as one of the 50 most powerful women in Washington by Ladies' Home Journal.
Linda promotes how more women in leadership is good business and smart politics. Her new book, Women Lead the Way: Your Guide to Stepping up to Leadership and Changing the World, brings her strong experience, powerful research and personal convictions about women's strengths to the ground level with a practical roadmap for women to move up.
It is also at this annual luncheon that the Woman Philanthropist of the Year Award will be presented. For more information contact Carol L'Esperance at 330.643.5519 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
