(Atlanta, GA – May 13, 2012) On April 30, Atlantic Capital Bank hosted its Women in Leadership Forum featuring Pearl Cleage, an award-winning author and playwright. The event, which was attended by 60 people, was held in the Circle Room at the Woodruff Arts Center. Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by Ms. Cleage’s remarks. She spoke to the group about her latest play, “What I Learned in Paris,” a comedy set in 1973 when Maynard Jackson was elected Atlanta’s first African American mayor. Within the crowd-pleasing storyline, the play examines the theme of female empowerment through the main character, Evie. Ms. Cleage read one of Evie’s monologues to the group and reflected on how her personal experiences helped to shape the play’s plot and the characters. 

Atlantic Capital Bank’s Women in Leadership Forum is an initiative to connect and motivate women in leadership positions in Atlanta. Two to three times a year, the Forum brings female Atlanta business leaders together for an evening of inspiration, camaraderie, and discussion. The events serve to help women build strong relationships with each other and grow in their careers. Speakers are carefully selected for their experience, talent, and impact in the Atlanta community. Past speakers have included: Lisa Borders, Vice President of Global Community Connections at Coca-Cola and Chair of the Coca-Cola Foundation; Maria Sutej, Regional Vice President of Sales for Avon Products (now retired); and Cathy Cox, President of Young Harris College.
