Episode #17: Cathy Engelbert '86

Cathy Engelbert '86 headshotIt’s hard to believe Cathy Engelbert ’86, first female CEO of a Big Four accounting firm, could ever be shy. But she credits Lehigh with bringing her out of her shell and her own willingness to practice, prepare, and stretch with elevating her not just to the top of her field, but to a new role as commissioner of the WNBA. Hear about her journey and how she’s shaping the future of women through her league — and at Lehigh.
