A chemistry major at Bryn Mawr and former member of the College's board of trustees, Karen Kerr '89, who is currently the senior managing director, Advanced Manufacturing, at GE Ventures, tells the Huffington Post that her time at Bryn Mawr was key to her growth as a leader.
From the article:
I learned a lot about leadership from my days in college student government and from playing team sports. I was Head of the Honor Board at Bryn Mawr, which gave me a chance to do a lot of mediation and dispute resolution. I learned how to have direct conversations without accusations — that is invaluable as a manager.
