On June 21, IWF’s Leadership Foundation celebrated the 25 years of the Fellows Program and the women who made it possible. 140 women traveled from 8 countries to be a part of this discussion and celebration, including 37 fellow alumnae from 16 of the 24 cohorts.
At the roundtable discussion, A Quarter Century of Change, four women who put big cracks in the glass ceiling shared their unique perspective and discussed the current status of women in the workplace. The conversation with the audience that followed was robust and thought-provoking.
