Two events to highlight and promote women and leadership

Two upcoming events will highlight women in leadership roles and their trajectories toward those roles.

Women and Leadership Workshop

The Claremont Colleges Women and Leadership Alliance, a joint endeavor to support and promote student programs at the Claremont Colleges that will highlight issues faced by women in leadership in business, government and the professions, will hold its 7th Annual Women and Leadership Workshop on Friday, Feb. 19, 2016.

The workshop will begin at 11:30 a.m. in CMC's Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum with a lunch featuring keynote speaker Dorothy Attwood, Senior Vice President of Global Public Policy for Walt Disney.

A series of topical breakout sessions with female leaders will follow, and then transition to roundtable discussions in CMC’s McKenna Auditorium with professionals in various industries. This event is designed to support all Claremont Colleges students during a time of preparation for post-graduation opportunities and employment, as well as connect students with successful women leaders representing various fields of endeavor such as law, nonprofits, entrepreneurship, finance, consulting, entertainment, education, government service, marketing, and health services.

Sign up for the half-day workshop.

Kravis-de Roulet Conference: Women’s Leadership Journeys

The Kravis Leadership Institute will hold the 24th Annual Kravis-de Roulet Conference on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016.

This conference will highlight research demonstrating that women have distinct attributes that are conducive to strong leadership and provide insights from women in the field who have made an impact through their leadership journeys. The intent of the conference is to join leading scholars in the study of women and leadership with speakers from diverse sectors to provide the audience with a guide to navigate their own journeys to impactful leadership.

A complete schedule of the conference is available online.

The cost is $25 for students, $100 for others. Claremont Colleges students will be refunded their $25 after attending the conference. Claremont Colleges faculty and staff may attend free of charge.
