First Eve Women’s Summit Brings Energy and Ideas

EveAwards47th_logo-1Times-Union editor Frank Denton recently wrote about the first-ever Eve Summit held last week.  Fueled by statistics about women in local leadership presented by Donna Orender, attendees spent time in small group discussions, brainstorming ideas on how to diversify local leadership.  “While very energized,” Orender said following the Summit, “I am tempered by the thought of what we MUST do to capture, galvanize and put into motion tactical plans that will develop the roots for us to grow a community built on diverse leadership.
