The inaugural Office Depot Foundation Women’s Symposium took place on October 7, 2014. Throughout this highly engaging day, approximately 300 women from South Florida and beyond gathered in an atmosphere inspired by innovation and collaboration. They gained a new understanding and appreciation of how they can be even more successful—no matter where they are in the course of their careers.ODF_5
