For International Women’s Day, Olin celebrated the successes of professional women who have faced challenges and made an impact. This year’s panel included women from a wide spectrum of lived experiences who exemplify the talent, drive and leadership women bring to the workplace.
Building on the IWD’s #EmbraceEquity theme, the panel shared stories, lessons learned, business philosophies and how their values have affected their decision-making.
The panelists were:
Darci Darnell, BSBA 1994, partner and global head of the customer sales and marketing practice, Bain & Company;
Laurie Hiler, EMBA 1996, project lead/coordinator, CGB Women’s Leadership Development and Mentoring Program;
Ann Marr, vice president of Global Human Resources at World Wide Technology;
Lakesha Mathis, director, Diverse Business Accelerator, Greater St. Louis Inc.
Staci Thomas, professor of practice in communications, moderated the March 8 event.
