Women Leaders Motivated by Mary Ellen Jones, President of the Engine Alliance

May 30, 2012
MetroHartford Alliance
Mary Ellen Jones offered a riveting presentation at the Gathering of Women Leaders about her personal experiences navigating the ropes and advancing her career in a male dominated industry.  The audience of mostly female Strategic Partners and Leadership Investors listened as Jones offered advice, which included the importance of finding a mentor, being assertive enough to ask for what you want and taking the time to step out of your day job for well-rounded enjoyment and enrichment.  In addition to her position as president of the Engine Alliance, Jones is also Chair of the Connecticut Airport Authority and works alongside Alliance staff to strengthen business community ties to the airport.
