We were honored to have the Secretary of the United States Army, The Honorable Christine E. Wormuth, present opening remarks at our October 2021 Leadership Symposium and share ‘that the future for Army Women is bright.’ ” I hope by setting an example of what’s possible as a woman in the Army, that will hopefully inspire and motivate younger women in the Army who are just beginning their careers,” Wormuth said during the Army Women’s Foundation Leadership Symposium at the Association of the U.S. Army’s 2021 Annual Meeting and Exposition.
