Washington, DC — On Thursday, March 24th, Sterling Women of Washington DC will host a special Women’s History Month Luncheon featuring guest speaker Denise Turner Roth, Administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA).

When asked how GSA was changing during an interview on Leadership with Tom Fox for The Washington Post, Denise responded, “Our agency has made great strides over the last few years and there are still a number of opportunities to improve even more. This year, we will continue to build on our success and continue to explore paths that pushes our government forward, further providing the support and services our federal partners need in the 21st century.”
