TwinCities: Guthrie event will honor female leaders

From TwinCities.com, September 15, 2014

The George Family Foundation and the Guthrie Theater will honor female leaders tonight at a Celebrating Twin Cities Women Leaders event.

The event will recognize 84 local women who have made a difference in the Twin Cities through business, government, education, social service, media and the arts. Among those recognized are Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., former Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Kathleen Blatz and St. Thomas University President Julie Sullivan.

“These women are leading or have led our major corporations, government organizations, nonprofit foundations, health care, universities and colleges and the arts,” said Bill George, former Medtronic CEO and Harvard Business School professor. “We are proud to recognize these outstanding leaders.”

The private ceremony precedes dinner and a preview of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “The Heidi Chronicles.”
