Businesswoman Carly Fiorina to speak to approximately 350 students at The Catholic University of America on Tuesday, October 24 at 5:10 p.m.

(Washington, D.C.) The Busch School of Business and Economics at The Catholic University of America will host Carly Fiorina to speak to students about how vital civil society is for problem-solving and advancing the public good.

The first woman to ever lead a Fortune 50 company, Fiorina’s extensive resume ranges from leading Hewlett-Packard during the worst technology recession in 25 years, to running for President of the United States, to serving as Chair of the External Advisory Board of the CIA.

Today Fiorina serves as chair of the Unlocking Potential Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to supporting local leaders solving problems in their own communities — equipping them with the behaviors, characteristics, disciplines and tools to increase their leadership and problem-solving capacity. She believes that leaders are made, not born, and that everyone has far more potential than they realize.

Fiorina will be speaking as part of the Busch School of Business and Economics’ CEO Lecture Series, which invites reputable CEOs and inspiring leaders to share how they achieved their career goals as well as stories from their personal lives. Previous speakers include Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute; Tim Busch, CEO of the Pacific Hospitality Group; and James T. Hackett, Partner Riverstone Holdings, LLC.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the school at business@cua.edu or 202-319-5236.
