During the AOA’s Optometry’s Meeting® in Chicago this year, the Women of Vision (WOV) hosted its annual event. The keynote speaker was Susan Sher, former Chief of Staff to Michelle Obama, former lead counsel for the City of Chicago and current vice president for corporate strategy and public affairs at the University of Chicago.

To an audience of about 100, Sher shared her experience in the White House and discussed her six steps on the path to leadership. Her stories delighted the WOV and her advice prompted much discussion.

The WOV is dedicated to mentoring female optometrists by providing education and networking.

It will host another gathering at the American Academy of Optometry in Phoenix on the evening of Oct. 24 on the topic of autism.
