We Brought Together Powerful Women To Discuss Breaking Barriers and Championing Female Leadership


The Michigan Ross Executive MBA Program recently assembled women leaders to continue a national conversation about gender equality in the workplace and elevating women to leadership positions.

Taking place on the eve of International Women’s Day, the event featured a panel of distinguished business leaders, professors, and Michigan Ross graduates. During the one-hour event, the panelists discussed what successful female leadership looks like today and shared secrets to their success, including lessons learned about defying odds.

The discussion was moderated by Angela Chee, a media and communications coach, TV host, and former Los Angeles news anchor with more than 20 years of media experience. Angela now works with visionary leaders, executives, and entrepreneurs who are ready to own their power and their voice and amplify their message and mission through speaking, video, and media.

Other panelists include:

  • Anisa Riddell, global strategic programs & initiatives for HP;
  • Jessica Clemons, functional strategy at Accenture
  • Mika Yokoyama, procurement business operations, risk & analytics for Tekeda Pharmaceutical
  • Dana Muir, Michigan Ross professor of business law

The Ross Executive MBA was recently ranked #3 in the world by Poets&Quants, for its quality of teaching, strength of the alumni network, and strong reputation among employers.
