WASHINGTON -- March 27, 2013

Three of the technology industry’s top women executives will discuss “Lessons
Learned on the Pathway to Corporate Success” – one of the highlights when The
National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE) holds its 2013
Professional Development Institute.

To be held April 15-19 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Washington DC-Crystal
City (300 Army Navy Drive, Arlington, VA), NAPE’s Professional Development
Institute – this year entitled “Igniting Innovation: Access, Equity, and
Diversity” – is the premier professional development event for educators and
advocates dedicated to removing barriers to equal opportunity in education and
the workforce.

“Lessons Learned on the Pathway to Corporate Success” will feature
presentations by Joni Blakeslee, Senior Manager, Corporate Affairs, Cisco; Pat
Elizondo, Senior Vice President, Xerox Corporation; and Monica McManus, Vice
President of Information Technology Services, Lockheed Martin Corporation.

The panel – during which the three leading women executives will reflect on
the experiences, both personal and professional, that hindered and helped them
attain their level of business success – will be held on Tuesday, April 16,
from 10:45 a.m. – noon.

“These women have broken through glass ceilings and changed the conversation,”
says NAPE Chief Executive Officer Mimi Lufkin. “Attendees will learn how they
did it and what lessons they can take away to ensure that more barriers are
overcome and underrepresented students become represented business
professionals in the technical fields of the future.”

The panel immediately precedes the Institute’s keynote address, to be
presented by Stephanie C. Hill, President of Lockheed Martin’s Information
Systems & Global Solutions-Civil product line.

Interested individuals can attend Tuesday’s morning panel, luncheon keynote,
and the afternoon reception for $190. The cost for the luncheon keynote only
