Conway Center Dedicated

Entrepreneur and author Diane Hessan—the former CEO of Boston’s Startup Institute—talked about the rewards and benefits of risk-taking in a talk highlighting the dedication of Smith’s Jill Ker Conway Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center on October 18, 2017.

The event honored the anonymous donor who endowed the Center with a $5 million challenge gift in President Emerita Jill Ker Conway’s name last fall, as well as numerous other alumnae who have stepped forward to support the center. Hessan’s talk was sponsored by the Elizabeth Miller ’81 Lecture Fund.
