This event brings like-minded professional women in leadership positions together to share in an inspiring conversation with one of the country’s the top women executives.
Maryam will use her own professional experiences to explain how she has achieved success in a variety of industries, excelled to leadership roles, and navigated through common challenges many women in executive positions face. Lead by Katie Kempner, founder of Perspectives with Katie Kempner and Kempner Communications, the discussion will also focus on how Maryam has used her entrepreneurial talents to drive change, risk-taking, courage, and creativity; all of which she credits to her professional success.

In every position she has held, she has challenged the standard and made it better. Her courage inspires us and makes us feel optimistic for the future of women in leadership positions.”
