Friday Fireside Chat - Rita McGrath & Sylvia Acevedo
One of my heroes and role models, Sylvia Acevedo grew up in anything but privileged circumstances. Her Girl Scout leader changed her life - giving her a way to channel her determination and grit into a fabled career. She attended Stanford, literally became a rocket scientist and is currently CEO of the Girl Scouts of America. I'm so looking forward to our conversation!
