US Treasurer Rosie Rios inspired an audience of over 250 at the Women’s Leadership Summit held in San Jose, CA on May 7. She started her career in local government and was Fremont’s Director of Economic Development when I was city manager there. This annual event is jointly sponsored by Women Leading Government and the Municipal Management Association of Northern California. Management Partners was well represented by Karen Davis, Brittany Gabel and me. Much networking went on during the day, new friends were made, and leadership aspirations and ideas on other pertinent topics were shared. It was an enriching day.
