Young Leader Meeting
DEC Young Leader Series: Major General Gwen Bingham
About This Meeting
DEC Young Leaders were treated to a unique lunch meeting with Major General Gwen Bingham, Commanding General, TACOM LC MC, on September 30, 2015. The sold-out meeting was held at the U.S. Army’s Detroit Arsenal in Warren.
After highlighting her 34-year U.S. Army career and the extraordinary economic impact the U.S. Army has in Michigan, Major General Bingham shared leadership pointers with attendees. Professional development topics included personal brand, public speaking tips and the importance of diversity in today’s global workplace. She closed by sharing her leadership philosophies titled “Bingham’s Top 10 Plus 3”.
A Q&A session followed with questions ranging from how she overcame socio-economic barriers to how Young Leaders can help today’s military. Afterwards, Young Leaders enjoyed a tour of “The U.S. Army Experience” – an opportunity to see, feel and interact with some of today’s finest Army vehicles and equipment.
Many thanks to Major General Bingham and the U.S. Army for their generosity and for making this meeting possible.
