Huffington Post features NRA CEO in 'Women in Business'

National Restaurant Association President and CEO Dawn Sweeney was featured in the Huffington Post’s business section Tuesday in a special column on “Women in Business.”

In the interview, Sweeney discusses lessons she’s learned at different stages of her life, from growing up on a farm in rural Maine, to holding executive positions at several organizations, and finally to her current position at the NRA.

“I have been offered countless opportunities to grow and stretch way outside my ‘comfort zone’ and learn both from successes and failures,” Sweeney said.  “I am driven each day by trying to be a better version of myself than the way I was the day before.”

Sweeney also addressed

  • Advice for women who want a career in the restaurant industry
  • The most important career lesson she has learned
  • The biggest issue for women in the workplace
  • The importance of mentorship to her career
  • Female leaders she admires
  • What’s ahead for the National Restaurant Association
