The School of Business and the Student Government Association are excited to present the 2019 Women in Leadership Forum for the Texas Wesleyan community. It will be held from 8:30-11:30 a.m. on Friday, March 22, at the Baker Building.
This free event is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, alumni and university friends to network, learn from top women in business and develop personal growth strategies.
The forum will be a morning tea, where you are encouraged to bring your own teacup as a way to ignite conversations during a meet and mingle session from 8:30-9 a.m. If you don't have a teacup, there will be some available for guests to use.
We will spend time reflecting on our own personal leadership history and story prior to hearing from esteemed author and consultant Judy Hoberman about the 7 Qualities of Leadership. Following the discussion, there will be a presentation on a brief history of women in pursuit of leadership positions in the workforce through a visual fashion representation and discussion of key historic moments that have shaped women in leadership in our society.
Join us for an amazing morning of tea, conversation and a journey through the history of women on the path to leadership through the last 8 decades.
The Women in Leadership Forum is held every March in conjunction with International Women's Day-a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
