Please join us at the Gunn’s Dairy Barn at Heritage Park on December 7, 2016 to hear Tracy Robinson, Vice President, Supply Chain at TransCanada speak on her journey within the industry.

“Lead Like a Woman”

Which of these attributes are associated with being a woman: Decisiveness or compassion? Intelligence or honesty? Ambition or organization? How about all of them! This speech will explore the new model of leadership that encourages collectiveness, compromise and influence without authority. You will be challenged to put aside the masculine traits you believe superiors are looking for and embrace the feminine characteristics which enables teams to thrive.
