Special guest Bob Moritz, U.S. chairman and senior partner at PwC, will attend the webcast viewing at the Nittany Lion Inn with Penn State students and faculty. Beginning at 1:45 p.m., after Sandberg’s webcast, Moritz will host a panel discussion on leadership, career, and other topics from the webcast.

Finally, the event will conclude with a workshop on Communicating with Confidence from 3-4 p.m. The workshop will help participants learn to maximize their communication style, engage others in dialogue, and create and deliver compelling messages.

Register today for "Aspire to Lead: The PwC Women's Leadership Series," slated for Thurs., April 24, from 12:30-4 p.m. at the Nittany Lion Inn.

While the focus of the leadership series is on the advancement of women, men are welcome and equally encouraged to participate.
