Female Leaders Receive Advice from Former N.C. Governor Bev Perdue

SHARE

Female business owners, elected officials and others gathered for the Women in Business & Leadership Symposium at The Carolina Inn. Attendees enjoyed seeing old friends and making new connections over tea and lunch in the Chancellors’ Ballroom. Speaker Robin Whitsell of Whitsell Innovations told the audience that “it’s OK to name and own the thing you want in your life” and discussed how she recast the label “brash” into “bold” or “brave.” Former N.C. Governor Bev Perdue encouraged everyone to think about the consequences of their decisions because as she said, “When you’re my age, you want to look back and say, ‘I’ve had a grand ride.’”


Thanks to the Town of Chapel Hill Economic Development, Orange County Economic Development, Walker Lambe and The Carolina Inn for making this event possible.
