"My life and leadership style always have been driven by the philosophies of servant leadership; yet the dynamic power of WE Lead refueled, transformed and deepened those skills which have resulted in success in my career and personal life. As a relatively new member of the region, I found that WE Lead reignited my professional and personal passions while allowing m e to forge new relationships and build strong networks with extraordinarily talented women."- Lynnette M. Heard, M.Ed., University of Cincinnati Foundation, WE Lead Class 7
