Kinne, Hogshead-Makar, Corey, Bayat featured at JU Women in Leadership March 7

State Attorney Angela Corey, Olympic gold medalist and Title IX advocate Nancy Hogshead-Makar, Afghanistan’s Ariana Television Senior Vice President Fatema Bayat and Ambassador Marilyn McAfee are just some of the speakers lined up for the first JU Women in Leadership Conference this Friday, March 7, at the Jacksonville University Davis College of Business.

wlc speakers.jpgWith the theme "Lean In To Leadership," the event geared to students is designed to connect JU women with each other and give them a chance to learn from outstanding and accomplished local women.
The conference will begin with a panel dialogue based in part on the work of Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and author of Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead,” a bestseller and an inspiration to many young aspiring graduates.
The afternoon will continue with two breakout sessions that will allow participants to choose from several different topic areas, including “The Leadership Ambition Gap,” “Success and Likeability,” “It’s a Jungle Gym, Not a Ladder,” and “Working Together Toward Equality.”
A schedule for "Lean In To Leadership" is below, and a .pdf of the program with speaker bios is available by clicking here.
