2021 RTP’s Women in Leadership

The Research Triangle Foundation is celebrating International Women’s Day with a virtual panel discussion bringing together prominent women leaders from across the Triangle region to share their perspectives, insights, and experiences in the workplace.

Our speakers will explore their proudest moments, what it means to work in the Triangle, COVID-19 challenges including forging connections and relationships while not in person, and succeeding in your career in a virtual format.

Open to everyone, we invite you to use this platform as a supportive place to ask questions, learn, grow and reflect. This is a highly participatory session and sure to be a rich conversation!
