What does it take to get to the top? How does a success-oriented woman manage the age old career-life balance in today’s corporate environments? Over 120 undergraduate and graduate students from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business gathered on January 10th to listen to several women who have navigated this terrain.

The seven inspiring panelists were alumnae of the undergraduate and graduate programs at Georgetown University and its McDonough School of Business, as well as the George Washington University. They represented financial institutions such as Barclays, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs and Jefferies. Professor of the Practice Lynn Doran posed questions such as “What does work-life balance mean to you?” and “What advice can you give our students as they apply for highly competitive positions at your firms?” The conversation was honest and energetic.
