And included uplifting speeches and performances from Fall 2023 graduates and an NPower graduate class of 2015 along with a captivating conversation with Bill McDermott, Chairman and CEO of ServiceNow, and Karen Pavlin, Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer of ServiceNow.

Empowering Professional Development
