Northeastern’s Women who Inspire Speaker Series continued Tuesday night with a panel discussion featuring three financial services leaders. The series, launched two years ago, looks to empower the next generation of women leaders and provide direct access to industry professionals.

Mary Deatherage, PNT’15, managing director of private wealth management and a private wealth adviser at Morgan Stanley, joined fellow panelists Fran Janis, MBA’82, founding partner of Pomona Capital and Rachel Tyler, DMSB’90, senior vice president at Fidelity to discuss leadership issues in finance and private equity. Mike Sander, executive director of the Potomac Research Group, moderated the discussion.

Among other issues, the group took notice of Northeastern University’s co-op program.

“It’s really important to get up every day and be happy doing what you are doing,” said Janis. “The great thing about Northeastern and the co-​​op program is you get to try a lot of different things so you might be able to figure it out early.”
