Women's Fund of Omaha Fall Luncheon

  • Print

Wall Street veteran Carla Harris, one of the most successful and respected women in business today, will share her strategies for thriving in the workplace at the Women’s Fund of Omaha’s 11th Annual Fall Luncheon on October 27.

Early in her career, Harris promised herself that when she made it to the top of the corporate ladder and others came to her for advice, she would provide them with her personal tools for reaching full potential. Harris will share some of these “pearls” of knowledge and wisdom as she talks about the distinctions between mentors, sponsors and advisers; the importance of having a penchant for taking risks; the power of networks and more. Managing director at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, Harris was recently named to Fortune Magazine’s list of “The 50 Most Powerful Black Executives in Corporate America.” She is author of the book, “Expect to Win.” Luncheon attendees will receive an autographed copy of the book.

Emcee is Lincoln comedian T. Marni Vos.

As is tradition at the luncheon, grants will be presented to local nonprofit agencies for programs targeting what Women’s Fund research has identified as the most critical needs for local women and girls. This year, $133,000 will be awarded to more than a dozen agencies. Additionally, one woman will receive keys to a refurbished 2005 Dodge Caravan mini-van under the Recycled Rides program. Nonprofit agencies nominated clients for the program, and the recipient was selected by a Women’s Fund committee.

The luncheon takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Ramada Plaza Hotel, 3321 South 72nd St. Ticket prices are: individual, $75; individual corporate, $150; corporate table (10 seats), $1,500. To order tickets, visit or call 402.827.9280.
