The empowHER leadership retreat was created in honor of April Bocian.
April was born on April 28, 1998, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Family, friends and teammates have countless memories of how April made them laugh and brightened their day, whether she was clowning around with basketball friends, playing practical jokes on her sisters or spending time with her family.
April was an amazing girl with a powerful spirit whose life, unfortunately, ended too quickly. In honor of April, Suzy Merchant and the Eli Broad College of Business have partnered to launch the empowHER retreat.
