My favourite or most successful post:

This was the first Women’s event and happy hour at the Satellite conference, which is attended by thousands in the Aerospace industry from around the world! HR professionals from large and small companies shared tips and tricks for hiring and retaining women. Their advice was incredible and it means so much that a large conference supported the event.
