A recent survey of WASA’s Women in Leadership event participants identified a strong desire for regional, in-person opportunities to learn from and with other women. This luncheon Finding Joy Together in the Wilderness will provide opportunities to feed your mind, body and soul as you learn from panels of business and educational leaders and interact with your colleagues.
