President's Message

A Letter from our President, Jill Cossman

Hello Friends!
2012 has been a fabulous year of programs for Women's Leadership Council. We started the year with Monica Lozano, CEO of Impermedia, as the speaker for the seventh annual Fulfillment Fund kickoff luncheon in January. We welcomed six new Fulfillment Fund mentees to our mentoring program in furtherance of our goal of making a positive contribution to the next generation of women leaders. In March, Patty DeDominic and Maureen Ford introduced their book, Life Moments for Women. In May, Dr Kathy Magliato shared with us her fascinating, and sometimes harrowing, experiences as a female heart surgeon. At a novel Sunday brunch event, Lisa Bloom inspired us with her thoughts about young women and the influence of the media. In July, we held our members only dinner at the home of Deborah Siegel. In October, our members attended a special screening of Lynne Moses' documentary "A Whisper to a Roar" at the Directors Guild of America Theatre. In October we had Gwynne Shotwell, President of SpaceX, impress us with her passion for engineering and space exploration and transportation. This month we will hold our annual wine and gourmet dinner at AOC, with Caroline Styne, a James Beard finalist, as our speaker. Thank you all for the wonderful and inspiring programs that contributed to such a successful year!
