Our fall professional development program, presented by the Army Women’s Foundation and hosted by AUSA’s Institute of Land Warfare, was a tremendous success.
More than 120 Active, Reserve and Retired Soldiers gathered Oct. 9, 2017 in Washington, D.C. to examine leading in a complex world. They gained knowledge, made new contacts and left feeling inspired.
The Army Women’s Foundation presents professional development opportunities each year in March at its annual Summit. But this was the first time the Foundation offered a professional development program at the AUSA Annual Meeting and Convention.
Maj. Gen. Mari K. Eder, USA, Ret., delivered the keynote.
Command Sgt. Maj. Donna Brock, USA, Ret., treasurer of the Army Women’s Foundation, moderated the discussion.
Panel members were Brig. Gen. Cindy Jebb, Dean, United States Military Academy; Chief Warrant Officer 4 Phyllis Wilson, USAR, Ret., US Army Warrant Officer Career College, Fort Rucker; Command Sgt. Maj. Julie Guerra; Staff Sgt. Elizabeth Marks, Paralympic Athlete.
