College of Law
11:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.

Women Leading in Law, Business & Philanthropy

The goal of the inaugural Women Leading in Law, Business & Philanthropy conference is to provide a space to learn about how women are and have been effectively leading in their respective communities. What have been the challenges of being women in those communities? In contrast, what have been the advantages? These questions, along with many others, will be the focus of programming related to the work being done by women in the judiciary, in government, in private business, and in philanthropic organizations. 

The conference will run from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm on Friday, March 3, 2017.
