Coffee and Conversations

In celebration of Women’s History Month, Women and Leadership Coffee and Conversation will host woman leaders across campus in a question and answer panel. We will engage in a discussion that reflects on lessons learned, advancing a career during a pandemic, creating a culture that supports and empowers women, and provide advice for those to advocate from themselves in their current positions, and those preparing to advance their role.
