Reunion Homecoming Classes Without Quizzes: Advancing Women's Leadership


Women make up half the population and have earned more than half of all undergraduate degrees in the U.S. since the early 1980s; yet women comprise only 17% of the U.S Congress, 4% of Fortune 500 CEOs, and 16% of the board of directors of major corporations. Come and learn the mechanisms underpinning the lack of women leaders and how organizations and individuals can increase women’s leadership.

This talk will be webcast for those of you unable to attend Reunion Homecoming. Click here for webcasting information.
