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.

Nonprofit agencies nominated clients for the program, and the recipient was selected by a Women’s Fund committee.
