Women and Leadership (Spring 2019)

During the spring semester, participants engage in small group, interactive sessions with practitioners who discuss their career paths and how gender impacts decision-making and leadership in their professional environments. Students also participate in one or more trips to Washington D.C. to meet with women in positions of leadership in public and private sectors.
