Janice Zarro recently attended the IWF Visionary Leaders Celebration-50 years of Women Changing the World 1974-2024 in Washington, DC.
The gathering was to recognize the women that have made IWF a dynamic organization reflecting on the past fifty years and looking at the potential for the next fifty years.
Janice listened to the Honorable Susan Rice, Domestic Policy Adviser to President Biden, former US Permanent Representative to the United Nations, and a National Security Council Adviser to the President, share her story of leadership challenges and her current role in the White House.
It was exciting for Janice to reunite with The Honorable Henrietta Holsman Fore, Chairman and CEO Holsman International, Senior Managing Partner Radiate Capital, and former Executive Director of UNICEF. Both worked together decades ago with a non-profit helping women in third-world countries secure loans for their small businesses. Ms. Fore briefed the members on the nexus of policy power and money.
Janice also attended a diplomatic dinner with H.E. Anthony Phillips Spencer, Ambassador of Trinidad and Tobago, with women attendees from Austria, Ireland, and the United States. The conversation was devoted to global challenges and the advancement of women’s leadership.
