2012 WOTY Carolyn Buck Luce
Carolyn Buck Luce warmed our hearts and inspired everyone in the room with her Woman of the Year speech.

The WOTY event is not just a single day. It began with the opportunity to connect with Carolyn (@CarolynBuckLuce) on a tweet chat before the event, then HBA members connected via a LinkedIn invitation to join them on the “WOTY train” as they donned purple scarves and networked all the way to NYC. Rising Stars were lauded at the Salute to the Stars event Wednesday evening. Attendees caught up with colleagues and made new contacts at the Celestial Connections celebration before gathering in the ballroom for the luncheon to hear from our award winners. HBA members, chapters and guests shared the excitement live by tweeting highlights from the speeches (#WOTY).

Carolyn Buck Luce inspired us and touched our hearts as she shared her leadership journey. She asked us to look at our lives and careers and ask “for what purpose?” Women should proclaim our ambition to be powerful and “work horizontally and collaboratively across company, industry and public/private boundaries to answer the scientific, ethical, economic and social issues that we confront as a society.”
