VIRTUAL: An Evening
Thursday, Nov. 11, 7 p.m.

Stacey Vanek Smith, host of The Indicator from NPR’s Planet Money, will be the keynote speaker for Hudson’s 8th celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week. Vanek Smith will discuss her latest book, Machiavelli for Women: Defend Your Worth, Grow Your Ambition, and Win the Workplace, a guide for how women can take and maintain power in careers where they have long been cast as second-best. While aimed toward women, Booklist, in a starred review, states that "this playbook from NPR host Smith could work for any sex… Guidance to relate to, and follow.”
