Compromise and collaboration seem to be a disappearing skill set in today's
world. Polarizing topics divide us rather than bring us together. At Textron,
finding a way to reach compromise and the ability to collaborate across silos
is paramount to our success. This talk will explore leadership requirements
to bring people together to solve and succeed in the marketplace, and how to
utilize these skills in other areas as well.

Ms. Atherton was appointed president and chief executive officer of our
Textron Systems segment in June 2017. She has a master's from the College of
William and Mary and a bachelor's in legal studies from the United States Air
Force Academy.

Textron's businesses provide innovative solutions to the defense, aerospace,
and general aviation markets.

The Whiting-Turner lecture series hosted by the A. James Clark School of
Engineering celebrates the fearlessness of entrepreneurship and brings
leading technology enterprise thinkers who deal with the real-world
challenges of a fast-paced, global economy to campus. In their lectures and
question-and-answer sessions, speakers share their insights and experiences
as well as their lessons and advice, inspiring students and faculty to apply
new ideas and approaches to their careers and ideas for new ventures.
