2011 Women in Business Lecture Series Program: January
Named in honor of Madam C. J. Walker, the first self-made female millionaire in US history, Walker's Legacy: A Women in Business Lecture Series is a quarterly series designed to enhance leadership skills, create networking and learning opportunities and bring exposure to emerging trends in business for women. The program is an initiative of the NMC Consulting Group, held in conjunction with the DC Office of Women's Policy & Initiatives and the DC Commission for Women. 2011 marks the second year of the Walker’s Legacy program which was founded in 2010 to address economic development needs of women in Washington, DC and beyond.
“This lecture series is an excellent opportunity for professional women to gain valuable insight from those who have been successful in their careers,” says Director of the Office on Women's Policy and Initiatives, Niambi Jarvis.
