Mount Saint Vincent to Host C200 College Reachout Seminar


Riverdale, N.Y. – The College of Mount Saint Vincent will host its second College Reachout Seminar in conjunction with the Committee of 200 (C200)—an invitation-only membership organization of highly successful women business leaders—on Thursday, December 3, 2015 in Smith Hall from 10 a.m. through 3:30 p.m.

College Reachout Seminars are daylong conferences where C200 members connect with young women and share their expertise and insights to inspire future women business leaders. At the event, C200 members will serve on panels, give presentations, and engage in roundtable discussions. Additionally, in conjunction with this event, C200 is offering three scholarships to be awarded to female Mount Saint Vincent student participants, totaling $5,000 each.

Mount students will be able to network with female presidents, CEO’s, and industry leaders to glean important insights into succeeding as a woman in the corporate world. The idea is to raise the level of representation of women at the highest level of corporate involvement.

At the College Reachout Seminar, students will learn what it takes to be a leader in business, as well as the importance of corporate philanthropy, business ethics, environmental sustainability, and entrepreneurship, among others. Students will also gain advice about making career choices.
