SHRM@QU members were excited to attend the Inaugural People’s United Center for Women and Business event on November 6, 2018. Members listened to Quinnipiac’s President Judy Olian speak about her top ten pieces of business ideas for the members of the business community. She urged members of the room to not take business personally and emphasized the importance of picking a good partner. Sara Longobardi, senior executive vice president of People’s United Bank shared how she relied on others to make decisions for her at the start of her college experience and how these experiences shaped her career path. She explained the importance of making choices and stressed that you can have both a family and be a successful women in business. Members then had the opportunity to network with other business professionals at the event and work to perfect their elevator pitches.
