From the Battlefield to the Boardroom
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Retired Army Colonel Jill Morgenthaler is a woman of many firsts. She was one of the first women to enter an experimental class for women in the U.S. Army ROTC and train as an equal with men. Overcoming obstacles, she was the first woman Battalion Commander in the 88th Regional Support Command Division, the first Brigade Commander in the 84th Division and then rose to the rank of Colonel. She was also the first woman to run homeland security for the state of Illinois. During her military career, Colonel Jill led hundreds of men and women around the world in war and peace, and was the recipient of the Bronze Star and the Legion of Merit for her lifelong leadership.

Now, after 30 years of success in high-stakes fast moving environments, Colonel Jill shares her leadership secrets with the world. Join us for an entertaining talk by this best-selling author and military pioneer in honor of Memorial Day.
