ASU alumnae featured at Women In Business breakfast

February 09, 2009

The ASU Alumni Association will showcase four successful Sun Devil women who will discuss what it takes to make it in business, as well as what it takes to make a difference in the world, at its “Love What You Do, Do What You Love” breakfast and panel discussion, 7:30-9 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 26, at The Buttes, A Marriott Resort, 2000 Westcourt Way, Tempe.

The four alumnae featured in the panel discussion at the event include:

•    Betsy Bayless, CEO of Maricopa Integrated Health System and former Arizona Secretary of State;
•    Michelle Kort, founder of As You Wish Pottery;
•    Denise D. Resnik, owner of Denise Resnik & Associates and co-founder of the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center;
•    and Mary Kim Titla, an award-winning broadcast journalist and publisher of Native Youth Magazine.

The event is hosted by the association’s Women in Business networking program. Alissa Pierson, associate executive director for alumni programs, explained that the breakfast was one component of the Women in Business program, which allows female graduates of ASU to stay connected to the university, expand their business network, and learn more about what the Alumni Association can do to deepen their Sun Devil connection.

“We’re really excited that we could bring these four accomplished women, each with a degree from ASU, together to discuss their path to success,” Pierson said. “We hope that the event sparks participants’ creativity and inspires them to collaborate on projects that will enhance our community and world.”

The event is $40 for members of the ASU Alumni Association and $45 for non-members. For more information and to RSVP, visit
