Motivational Speaker Lisa Luckett to Deliver WOW Keynote

Lisa Luckett will provide the keynote address at the second biennial Women of Ohio Wesleyan (WOW) leadership forum, taking place on campus Oct. 19-20.

Lisa’s husband, Teddy Luckett ’84, was a partner and vice president at Cantor Fitzgerald working at the World Trade Center at the time of the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2001. Her forthcoming book, The Light in 9/11: Shocked by Kindness, Healed by Love, traces her inspiring journey through grief, offering empowering everyday lessons on handling life’s challenges. She has three children, including Jen Luckett ’16 and Billy Luckett ’20.

Deborah Thomas-Nininger, a professional development expert whose lessons translate to women at work and at home, will help wrap up the event with an interactive session. Other planned WOW panels will discuss the elusive work-life balance, the value of women advocating for themselves, and other topics relevant to women today.
