We are proud to recognize Tori Gillespie, PE, Director of Operations - Healthcare for her acceptance into the FOCUS St. Louis® Spring 2022 Women In Leadership (WIL) Cohort earlier this month.
FOCUS gives leaders the tools they need to make a difference in their workplaces and their communities through our civic leadership programs.
“For 40 years the Women In Leadership program has been bringing together a diverse mix of women from across sectors for growth, learning and connection,” says Shalia Ford, WIL Program Director. “This experience is designed to help participants gain the tools, resources and network to lead more confidently and effectively in all their spheres of influence.”
