This LIVE performance presentation on the life of Clara Barton (1821-1912) will feature the hardships she faced in the American Civil War, the obstacles to Women's Rights, the struggles of medicine on the battlefield, and her devout dedication and strong persistence in the day-to-day management of her vision to save others.

Clara was a Civil War nurse, the founder of the American Red Cross, the first woman to work for the Federal Government, the first female department head, and America’s first woman ambassador.

Clara was truly an early pioneer for women in Project Management as she worked alongside men in the field and inspired everyone to “Never Give Up!”.

Join us for an evening of discovery, inspiration, and celebration of the life of Clara Barton, performed by award-winning actress and Smithsonian Scholar, Mary Ann Jung.

The PMIWDC Monthly Dinner Meetings are held at the Sheraton Tysons (8661 Leesburg Pike, Tysons, VA 22182), typically on the second Tuesday of each month (subject to change due to holidays and venue/speaker availability). Members and non-members are welcome to join us for the best speakers and networking the Washington, DC area has to offer.

Each event will present specific learning points focusing on building a talent triangle of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management skills, unique to the presenter's area of expertise and the subject matter discussed while directly relating to improving the practice of managing projects and leading others.
