What is the "wolfpack's way" to business agility? Fabiola Eyholzer filled us in on behalf of Marie Williams, Associate Vice Chancellor for Human Resources at NC State University. Fabiola shared the story of how the university's Human Resources team started with humble beginnings and now leads the pack among higher education institutions for HR Agility.

According to Marie: "Our world needs big, bold ideas and deeds to match. NC State believes their strength comes from their people and they strive to think and do the extraordinary to overcome grand challenges."
