We discussed the societal barriers that women face in their careers, the benchmarks we set ourselves to be successful and the things we know now that we wish we’d know then. Overall a great evening of fantastic conversation and networking.

I strongly believe that through supporting each other, women can achieve their goals and career ambitions. When Annika, who is a good friend of mine, asked me to host Power Players, I agreed not only because it was in support of a great cause, but because it was in support of a great friend too.
