FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Linda McMahon, the famous founder of Stamford's WWE, sat down at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield with Elaine L. Chao, labor secretary under President George W. Bush, to take on a topic that they know a little bit about: “Women Can Have it All."
McMahon, a Greenwich resident, is the founder and CEO of Women’s Leadership LIVE at SHU. She hosted her fifth installment in the ongoing series Thursday afternoon.
Chao, who is married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, is the first Asian-American woman to serve in the Cabinet. She was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Sacred Heart University in 1991.
McMahon and Chao shared their perspectives on women in leadership and how to balance work and life.
The series, sponsored by the Jack Welch College of Business at SHU, examines how women can balance career, family and personal time. It features conversations with female leaders across a variety of industries and focuses on topics relevant to women in the workplace, such as management, entrepreneurship and launching and changing careers.
