She will speak about being a woman in the corporate world, how she got into politics, and how she juggles work and family.
“We ’re excited to have Secretary Lawson speak at our April meeting,” said Patti Henson, HCPBWA president. “We believe her experiences as the newly appointed Secretary of State, a state senator, and a business woman will be of interest to women in Hendricks County.”
