Women in Business: Fireside Chat with Laura Sen ('78)
In celebration of International Education Week 2017 & the launch of the Fung Scholars Program at Boston College, we welcome Laura Sen (’78). As former president and CEO, Laura Sen oversaw big box giant BJ’s Wholesale Club—with more than 200 locations in 15 U.S. states, some 25,000 employees and nine million members. Sen, who majored in romance languages but had no definite ideas about a future career, is a retail veteran regarded as a business "game changer" who has been on the Fortune 500 CEOs list and named among the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business by the magazine. In her current role, she is part of the team that sets the company's strategic direction. Honored for her philanthropy, Sen has said: "I've always found that I get way more back than I ever give."
This session will be faciltated by Dr. Melinda Stoops, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs at Boston College. A networking reception will follow the fireside chat.
Sponsored by the Office of International Programs, Fung Scholars Program, Career Center, Asian Studies Program, Alumni Affairs, Carroll School of Management & Women in Business.
