Lynn Utter to Present Keynote at Annual Leading Women Symposium & Golf Experience

Lynn Utter, President and COO of Knoll, North America

The College will celebrate women’s leadership in the workplace with its 7th Annual Leading Women Symposium and Golf Experience on Thursday, June 2, at the Blue Bell Country Club.

Proceeds from this annual event benefit the College’s Foundation in its support of career and leadership development programs for women.

The day begins at 10:30 a.m. with a brunch symposium featuring keynote speaker Lynn M. Utter, the President and COO of Knoll North America. During her career, Ms. Utter held a variety of leadership positions with major corporations. She is also a fellow of the Henry Crown leadership program at The Aspen Institute and serves on the Center for Work-Life Policy’s Hidden Brain Drain Task Force.

For the Symposium, experienced golfers are invited to play in the Leading Women Invitational at 1 p.m. Teams will compete in an 18-hole, informal team scramble.

In addition to the scramble, the event includes a “Learning Women” program—an introduction to the game for new or beginner golfers. Players will receive basic game training by noted PGA and LPGA teaching professionals.

In conjunction with the Symposium and Golf Invitational, the Woman-Owned Business Network will be holding a Business Expo featuring the businesses, products and services of the various members.  The symposium concludes with a cocktail reception and awards banquet at 4:30 p.m.

Each year, the Leading Women Symposium and Golf Experience hosts more than 130 business women in the greater Philadelphia area, offering a networking opportunity to reach decision-makers and potential clients.

A variety of corporate sponsorship opportunities are still available. For information about sponsorship opportunities or to reserve your spot at this event, visit or contact Debra Khateeb at 215-641-6534 or
