Simone was a panelist for a Quinnipiac University Alumni Career Development and People's United Center for Women & Business event. She was selected because of her inclusive leadership expertise and her impressive speaking skills. She engaged in authentic dialog that made the event feel like a conversation around a virtual table. She was well-versed and researched in her area and connected well with the audience. The hour flew by and we had positive audience reactions and high engagement throughout.
