About 40 undergraduate women poised to start business careers received some helpful advice about pushing past obstacles and networking during the Fourth Annual Women’s Professional Development Conference. “Women Beyond Boundaries,” held in the Mendoza College on February 3-4, was sponsored by the Undergraduate Women in Business Club, which supports business career pursuits of Notre Dame women.
Keynote speakers included Dolly Duffy, executive director of the Notre Dame Alumni Association, and Liz Lempres, a director in the Boston office of consultancy firm McKinsey & Co.
“Women are beginning to achieve new levels of leadership, yet still face many challenges,” said conference chair Katie Miller (BBA ’12). “We hope to inspire our fellow classmates to go forward with courage and optimism.”
