    Students, Faculty to Gain Opportunity for ‘Insights from Women in Finance’

    A panel of successful and influential Pittsburgh women who work in finance will speak with area university faculty and students on Wednesday at Duquesne University.

    The event, Investing in Your Future: Career Insights from Women in Finance, will be hosted by the National Association of Women's MBAs and Duquesne University. It will take place Wednesday, April 4, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Duquesne's Power Center.

    Panelists will include:

    • Rona Nesbit, chief financial officer of The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
    • Kim Tillotson Fleming, chair and chief executive officer of Hefren-Tillotson Inc.
    • Connie Bentzen, director of cash management at Blackrock
    • Rose Marie Manley, treasurer at Allegheny Technologies Inc. (ATI)

    The regular price of admission is $35; however the first 10 students from each university will be admitted free of charge. Dinner will be included. Attendees are expected to leave with a better understanding of the variety of career options in finance, and knowledge of the skills to excel and market themselves in the industry.
