Women in Leadership Workshop
A one day workshop mobilizing alumni and professional women to engage with students to explore ways they can succeed as leaders in their chosen sector. Students practice networking and receive practical advice from women in a variety of industries including the fields of law, non-profit, entrepreneurship, finance, consulting, entertainment, education, government service, marketing, and health services. Through interactions with attendees and guests, students identify their personal and professional interests as well as develop self-efficacy and practice expressing their own voice.
This event is open to all students from the 7-C Claremont Colleges and is sponsored by the Robert Day Scholars, Berger Institute for Work, Family, and Children, and the Kravis Leadership Institute.
This year's 10th Annual Women in Leadership Workshop will take place on
Friday, February 22nd, 2019!
In an increasingly competitive and demanding work environment, how do women "lean in" without falling? What current personal and professional decisions will affect our future private and work lives? What does balance mean in a society where the lines between work and home are blurred? The 10th Annual Women and Leadership Workshop: Redefining Work and Life explores these complexities through reflection and engaging conversation, with an opening keynote speech by Claremont McKenna's first female president, Pamela B. Gann, J.D.
The event will take place on Friday, February 22nd from 2:00-4:30pm. Dress code is business casual and the workshop will be followed by a networking reception in the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum. Space is limited. Please direct all inquiries to Jamie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
