Friday’s Women’s Leadership Colloquium Available to Stream Online

Congratulations to the Women’s College on a successful fourth annual Women’s Leadership Colloquium Friday.

The event, organized by the Women’s College, included successful female leaders sharing their career stories, passion and advice for others who aspire to lead. The guest presenters included keynote speaker Catherine Dixon, a principal at ghSMART; Mary Kathryn Wells, chief executive officer of Wells Marketing Agency; Kelley Castlin-Gacutan, educational consultant and former superintendent of Birmingham City Schools; Amy Whitley, retired vice president of human resources and chief diversity and inclusion officer for UPS; and retired Rear Adm. Patty Wolfe of the U.S. Navy Supply Corps.

Dixon challenged the young women in the audience to identify their true strengths and know the origins of those strengths. She said there is a positive side to struggle and adversity, an idea echoed by Wells.

Wells, the Brenau Alumni Association guest lecturer, discussed the roles both luck and skill played in her career. “It takes a bit of both to be successful,” Wells said.
