Entrepreneurship Panel


We're so grateful to the many alumnae and students who attended our event to learn from our entrepreneurship panel. Thank you to Molly Ledwith and Katie Kolbe '11, Katie Barchas Wilson '98, Megan MacCutcheon '99, Jodi Perry Yeager '86, Marelle Meyers '08 and Meghan Furey '10 for leading the panel and sharing your stories! Big takeaways included:

  • Know yourself and your worth;
  • Building a successful business and brand takes an investment of your time, patience, and perseverance;
  • Be who you are, and be that well - and do something you're passionate about.


If you missed the livestream, check out the recording here, or highlights on our Instagram.


We're excited for our next panel on Work/Life Balance on August 7, and to expand the Lifelong Learning program in the coming school year. Can't wait to share more!
