Up next is a conversation with Producer, Author, Speaker and NYU Professor Dianne Devitt about a topic that impacts many women in leadership—the role as caregiver for an elderly parent or loved one while maintaining all the aspects and routines of a normal life. Listen here.

In the third installation of the SITE Women IN Leadership podcast series, Holly Mills of Eventful Limited and Pamela Shepherd, CITP, CIS, of Global Events share their inspiring personal stories about how they tapped into their inner strength and re-evaluated their priorities when they found themselves unemployed during COVID.
