Network 2000 Event on November 9th benefits Women, Leadership and Equality Program
An impressive cross-section of female business leaders will convene next week when the Maryland networking/mentoring organization Network 2000
holds its annual Women of Excellence fundraising luncheon at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore on November 9th. This year's program features the noted international leader Mary Robinson, the former United Nations High Commission of Human Rights and past president of Ireland, as its keynote speaker.
Even more exciting for UM Law is that the Women, Ledadership and Equality Program
, specifically scholarships for its Rose Zetzer fellows, will be the recipient of this year's fundraising. Last year, more than 1,200 people attended the event. It raised more than $75,000.
The nonprofit Network 2000 was founded in 1993 to promote the advancement of women in professional and executive positions. Its membership is a roster of the region's top female leaders, including executives, attorneys, judges, entrepreneurs, and educators.
