ake a risk to advance in your career, even if you don’t feel quite ready, said Judy Olian, Quinnipiac’s ninth president. She shared inspiring stories and tips gleaned over her distinguished career to inspire more than 300 professionals and students at the inaugural event sponsored by the People’s United Center for Women & Business on Nov. 6.
Olian was one of two speakers at the program at Cascade in Hamden, titled “Women in Leadership: Lessons from the Top.” Sara Longobardi, senior executive vice president of retail banking at People’s United Bank, also discussed her career success, and both answered questions afterward.
People’s United Bank recently donated $5 million to support both the Center for Women & Business and the Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship within the School of Business. The university matched the donation and renamed its sports facility the People’s United Center.
