The Kennedy School of Government will participate via satellite in the global “Women.Future Conference” to be held on Wednesday, April 5, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The conference will feature women business leaders from Silicon Valley to Silicon Alley who will initiate a conversation among business and professional women committed to creating positive global change by transforming the world of work. Topics range from consumer goods, health care and leadership, to finances, e-commerce and work-life issues.
