#discussCLT Podcast: Episode 39, Inside the North Tryon Vision Plan

With Cathy Bessant, Bank of America’s chief operations and technology officer



Cathy Bessant is Bank of America’s chief operations and technology officer and the person recently labeled the “Most Powerful Woman in Banking.” She also happens to be the co-chair North Tryon Vision Plan’s advisory committee. In this episode of the #discussCLT Podcast, we talk to her about what the plan is, what area it covers, what it means for the underserved, and much more.

Also: The next discussCLT event is titled “Charlotte Task Forces: Are They Effective?” When the city faces a crisis-from education to economic mobility-we turn to task forces. Why? And do they make a difference, or do they sometimes get in the way of progress? That’s coming up on Wednesday, June 20, at Catawba Brewing in Plaza Midwood. More on that here.
