The Daily Record held its inaugural Women’s Leadership Summit on Tuesday, June 6, at the University of Maryland, Baltimore’s SMC Campus Center.

The event brought together Top 100 Women, Leading Women and Maryland’s network of women professionals to learn about important topics facing women in business today, give back to the community and create mentoring relationships.

“As women who are consistently working to bring business to Maryland, I believe it is important to frequently collaborate, give back to the community and motivate one another,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, The Daily Record’s publisher. “With over 150 guests in attendance, I am overjoyed to say that I believe we were successful in doing so.”

The summit included leadership activities and focused on community development. Deborah Phelps, executive director of the Education Foundation of the Baltimore County Public Schools Inc., gave the keynote speech, “Contributing to a Brighter Future.”

Panel discussions covered topics such as leadership preparedness, community engagement and creating an adaptive workforce. Attendees also gave donations to the event’s nonprofit partner, the Alzheimer’s Association, and were able to meet nonprofit organizations as part of an exhibition hall.

The presenting sponsor for the Women’s Leadership Summit was the University of Maryland Baltimore. Bank of America was the topic sponsor.
