The Ivy College of Business will present the third annual Ivy Women in Business Awards during a live virtual event on September 2. These awards celebrate women in business, and their champions, and serve as an opportunity to inspire young women in college as they prepare for a bright future in business.
Join us for an engaging conversation between our three honorees — Renee Schaaf, Berta Aldrich, and Anna Florzak — as they talk about their career paths, share stories and advice, and take questions from the audience. Audience members will be invited to submit questions via the chat feature in WebEx. The conversation will follow the awards presentation.
