Join the Converse community and women from across the Upstate for professional development and networking at Converse College’s annual President’s Leadership Forum, which welcomes Bank of America’s chief operations and technology officer, Cathy Bessant, on International Women’s Day. Named the “Most Powerful Woman in Banking” by American Banker magazine, Bessant has led Global Technology and Operations since 2010, delivering end-to-end technology and operating services across the company through nearly 95,000 employees and contractors in 35 countries.

Bessant will participate in a fireside chat moderated by President Krista Newkirk at 3 p.m. in Montgomery Student Center’s Barnet Room, focusing on:

  • How she leads one of the largest technology operations in the world,
  • Rapid innovation of technologies and new advancements in banking,
  • Responsible use of artificial technology and her cross-industry leadership in this area,
  • The underrepresentation of women in technology fields and Cathy’s personal career path and challenges, and
  • Insights and advice for women seeking to grow professionally and personally.

A networking cocktail social will follow at 4 p.m. in the upper lobby of Phifer Science Hall, located next door to Montgomery Student Center.
