Inspiring Leaders: The Power of You Tour

June 20, 2014 | By admin

Northwestern Mutual is organizing its first multi-city event tour for women, named Inspiring Leaders: The Power of You. This event aims to address the results of the company’s recent Elements of Success survey which revealed that there’s still an untapped leadership potential among women compared to men.

Women make up the majority of college graduates and continue to hold leadership roles in business and society, but only one third of women believe they have achieved their financial goals.

The Power of You tour hopes to bring women empowerment, and encourage women to believe and push for their full potential – personally, professionally, and financially.

The event features a stellar list of amazing women:

Moria Forbes, president and publisher of ForbesWoman. ForbesWoman is a multimedia platform targeting successful women in business and leadership. She is the founder of the Forbes Executive Women’s Board and is the host of the online video series “Success with Moira Forbes.”

Ingrid Vanderveldt, founder of Empowering a Billion Women by 2020. She is an entrepreneur, investor, and media personality who uses her business and media initiatives to guide women to success. Her mission is to provide tools, technologies and resources to women around the globe. She also serves on the U.N. Global Entrepreneurship Council.

Joann (Jo) Eisenhart, Ph.D., senior vice president of human resources, facilities and philanthropy, Northwestern Mutual. She holds a doctorate in human organizational development where her dissertation research focused on the topic of women, leadership and power in large corporations.
