Conversations with Leaders: The view from the boardroom

Please join us as we host the second in a series of dynamic and engaging conversations with corporate and civic women leaders about today’s business climate. Our speakers will address industry trends, economic outlooks, opportunities for advancement, diversity and inclusion, pathways of leadership, and other topics that shape our working environment.

Our conversation features Catherine Kilbane, Senior Vice President, Secretary and General Counsel at Sherwin Williams. With a flurry of regulations from Washington and increased demands from institutional investors, Cathy will provide her perspective from the board room and discuss trends in corporate governance that companies will likely face in 2016.

Our program will run from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., followed by an hour reception and networking opportunity.
