As part of the Tufts Health Plan Speaker Series, the Center for Women and Business at Bentley University presented Judge Nancy Gertner, retired U.S. district court judge for Massachusetts. The program was held on October 26.

Her address was followed by a question-and-answer period. Gertner’s book, In Defense of Women: Memoirs of an Unrepentant Advocate, was available for purchase.
