Cedar Crest College to host Power Up! series of seminars to cultivate women leaders



ALLENTOWN, PA – January 15, 2015  – Since 1867 Cedar Crest College has been educating, empowering, and cultivating the next generation of women leaders by preparing them to be members of the global community. That tradition continues with the return of the Power Up! Series of seminars starting next month.

The Power Up! Series provides women with tools, resources and insights to become stronger leaders within their fields. The program is designed for entry-level and mid-level professional women who are highly driven potential leaders seeking career success.
