Women in Leadership
The Women in Leadership program takes place in the spring semester and explores the intersection of gender issues and leadership in politics, athletics, business, media, law, and science.
In the past, the program has offered opportunities for undergraduate women and men to work interactively with experienced practitioners to learn about the inner workings of Washington, D.C. In addition to attending on-campus sessions, students have traveled to the nation's capital for a first-hand look at the political process. Participants have also had access to a variety of professional networking opportunities.
In Spring 2018, our Women in Leadership program took the form of a lecture and discussion series open to the entire campus community. These events looked at gender issues and leadership in public policy and higher education. Featured speakers included Gale Rossides, former Acting Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration; Julie Ramsay, Vice President of College Life at Gettysburg College; and Carol Cantele '83, Head Coach of Gettysburg Women's Lacrosse.
