Northshire Bookstore Community Event – Women in Leadership Luncheon featuring Kate White

May 15 @ 12:00pm-2:00pm

This is an in person event at the Park-McCullough Historic Carriage Barn in North Bennington, Vermont!

Join Berkshire Bank, in partnership with the Southwestern Vermont Chamber, for a rich and candid lunch with conversations on careers and leadership as we learn how successful women advanced and built their careers with confidence. Find out what inspires them, the challenges they faced along the way, and how they have played a big role in their businesses, organizations and communities.

The 3rd Annual Southwestern Vermont Women In Leadership Luncheon celebrates and encourages the many women leaders in the Southwestern Vermont region, while creating connections, partnerships, and friendships with those in attendance.

The highlight of this year’s luncheon is the keynote address by speaker and author Kate White, former Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan Magazine. Kate White is the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of eighteen novels of suspense, including The Last Time She Saw Him (due out on May 14). For fourteen years Kate served as the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, which under her became the most successful magazine in single copy sales in the U.S. Though she loved her magazine career, she decided to leave ten years ago to concentrate full-time on another passion: writing suspense fiction. She is also the author of several bestselling career books, including I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This: How to Ask for the Money, Snag the Promotion, Create the Career You Deserve, and the ground-breaking Why Good Girls Don’t Get Ahead but Gutsy Girls Do. Married and the mother of two children, she divides her time between New York City and Las Flores, Uruguay. She holds an honorary doctorate of letters from her alma mater, Union College.

Book Signing Event Sponsored by Machnick Builders, LTD Following the luncheon, attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to participate in a book signing event featuring Kate White. White will be available to sign copies of her latest books and engage with fans from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm at The Stable at Park-McCullough’s Carriage Barn. This intimate session presents a unique chance for attendees to connect with one of the most influential voices in women’s leadership and gain personalized insights from her vast experience in the publishing industry.
