Announcing Two New WLI Initiatives
Mentorship Program and WLI Champions
Earlier this summer, about 150 business and civic leaders from Charlotte spent three days in Pittsburgh for the Charlotte Regional Business Alliances’s annual Inter City Visit. While in the Steel City, the Charlotte delegation visited various venues and attended discussion panels touching on topics such as education and talent development; sports and partnerships; economic development; arts and science; and more.
On August 20, ULI Charlotte hosted a panel discussion at 8.2.0 about lessons learned from the trip. Moderated by Elizabeth McMillan of Crescent Communities, the panel included Brent Cagle, aviation director for Charlotte Douglas International Airport; Irene Vogelsong, interior design director at Perkins + Will; and Keva Walton, chief growth officer with the Charlotte Regional Business Alliance.
