Juliet Roulhac has been named Broward Workshop’s first female board chair. The nonprofit organization represents over 100 of the county’s major businesses and professions. Along with Roulhac, the organization announced new officers for 2021-22 featuring Vice-chair Steve Hudson, Treasurer Tim Petrillo and Secretary Dodie Keith- Lazowick. The selected officers will serve a two-year term. They were chosen based on their leadership roles at their companies and their charitable contributions to the community.
“I am honored to be the first woman to chair the Broward Workshop. Diversity in our communities is part of what makes Florida a great place to live, work and raise a family,” Roulhac says, who serves as Director of External Affairs for Florida Power & Light Company.
