How Will This Session be Right for You?

The panel includes: Kevin Barri, community banking president of Wells Fargo; Emily Begay of the Teichert Foundation; Robyn Parker, chair of the Women’s Fund grants committee at El Dorado Community Foundation; and, Karen Woodruff, vice president, community affairs for the Wells Fargo Foundation.
