Many want to see two characteristics in a female leader: Strong-minded and the ability to speak intelligently on key topics.
Lisa Ling, the executive producer and host of CNN’s “This is Life,” is a leader and philanthropist. She will be the keynote speaker Tuesday when Women United will hosts its 2nd Annual Leadership Breakfast.
This event will allow women to share their views on leading in business and philanthropy. This event will also allow attendees to experience inspirational speeches on success as they consider the topic of women who inspire and women who lead as a positive force.
Tuesday’s event is expected to sell out, just as last year when more than 240 individuals were reported to be in attendance at the Turnbull Center.
Ling fits the characteristics that Women United strives to embrace. Women United aims to show commitment to other women in order to advocate, give and volunteer to influence others with a positive impact for the community.
The leadership breakfast is known to bring top speakers such as Ling, to address well needed topics.
Ling has a history of providing insight on her journey in corporate America and her ability to successfully make a living. Ling began her career at the age of 16, when she was a television journalist to a national news magazine. In a little more than a decade, Ling became a senior war correspondent and traveled to over 24 countries. She has also served as a freelance reporter for ABC News, co-host for ABC’s “The View” and much more.
“Too often, we spend our days thinking about what we don’t have rather than what we do have,” Ling has said many times. “Be grateful every day.”
Ling will speak about her news series on CNN, “This is Life with Lisa Ling.” The show airs every Sunday at 10 p.m. on CNN.
The series has been airing since 2014, there is plenty that Ling can share with the crowd. The show covers details on her travel across America and the experiences she has had.
During the Women’s Leadership Breakfast, she will be able to speak on topics that tackle issues that women may come across in life, and she can speak from personal experience.
The doors will open at 8 a.m., and the program will be from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
