This past autumn, 30 Kellogg women gathered with Undersecretary General of the United Nations, Phumzile Mlambo to discuss ways that the Kellogg network could be of support to her goals for the Office of Women and Girls. I am happy to report that we are working on a couple of deliverables to engage in with her and her team. Keep an eye out for this development and an invitation to be part of this collaboration.
The calendar of events for the upcoming programs is in this newsletter. Let us know if you want to be part of any of these programs.
Mark your calendars for October 6th-9th for the 6th Forum in Denver, Colorado.

As we enter the Year of the Monkey in the Chinese Lunar Calendar, I invite you to use 2016 as a year filled with possibility, enterprise and progress. We are aiming to make this year even more special by nurturing your talents and collaborations.
Wishing you all the energy and opportunity of the Monkey year,
