Talk about inspiring!!! As a media professional (and editor) I typically keep exclamation points to a minimum, but I just can’t contain my excitement about what I witnessed today at the National Association of Professional Women ‘s (NAPW) National Networking Conference in New York. Hundreds of power women from across the nation gathered to network and be inspired at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel, where they not only attended the keynote event but workshops and panels that facilitated learning and empowerment.
Hosted by dynamic attorney and TV personality Star Jones, the event featured special guests including Huffington Post president and editor-in-chief, Arianna Huffington; CEO of Johnson Publishing Co., Desiree Rogers; lifestyle and business magnate Martha Stewart; and MORE magazine editor Lesley Jane Seymour. Each gave the audience amazing words of wisdom and inspiration on career development, strategic networking and upgrading the boss moves.
I caught up with Jones (@StarJonesEsq) before the event, where we chatted about her new post as NAPW spokeswoman, the oh-so-popular ‘lean in’ dynamic in today’s male-dominated business world and her next career phase.
