Constructing Innovative Leadership

Barbara Rusinko

President, Nuclear, Security & Environmental
Senior Vice President, Bechtel


Please join WWLI in welcoming Barbara Rusinko, President of Bechtel Nuclear, Security & Environmental as our first featured speaker of 2018. Barb's talk, Constructing Innovative Leadership, will draw from her own experiences rising to an executive role through her 30 years at Bechtel. 

Every step we take in our lives and careers provide opportunity to develop our leadership skills, sometimes in some very innovative ways.  Barb will discuss how she has utilized experiences over her 31-year career to construct her leadership style.  Participants will discover ways to apply these strategies to their current and future roles.
