The Army Women’s Foundation held its 10th Annual Summit and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony featuring fantastic speakers, and panel discussions with trailblazing Army women.

The summit’s theme was Lead, Network, Grow. Keynotes at the Summit included the  Army Vice Chief of Staff General James C. McConville and Deputy Chief of Staff of the Department of Veterans Affairs,  Gina Farrisee.
