Stony Brook Women’s Leadership Symposium

Our colleagues at Stony Brook have invited us to attend their Women’s Leadership Symposium on October 10.

This is not a ACE Women’s Network event, but is offered to our members as an event we feel will be of interest.

Find details or register at their event site. Looks like it’s going to be a great event!

You’re Invited!

Stony Brook University is hosting a Women’s Leadership Symposium on Friday, Oct. 10, 2014 at the Charles B. Wang Center which will serve as a day of conversation around women and leadership in higher education. The goals of the symposium are to develop women’s leadership capacities within the higher education community and provide career development opportunities for women on the Stony Brook campus and beyond. This event is made possible partly through a Presidential Diversity Mini-Grant for Departmental Diversity Initiatives and the Division of Information Technology.

Sharing their research and experience, our roster of speakers features several prominent women including Dr. Debora Spar, President of Barnard College and author of the book, “Wonder Women: Sex, Power and the Quest for Perfection”; Jen Lee Reeves, Manager of Digital Strategy and Training for AARP and former journalism professor and non-traditional thinker about social media and communications; and Nicole Williams, Career Expert at LinkedIn and founder of WORKS, a go-to online resource named one of Forbes magazine’s Top 10 Career Websites for Women.

The Women’s Leadership Symposium will take place from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and includes continental breakfast, luncheon, and door prizes. There will also be breakout sessions, networking opportunities, and a book signing of Spar’s book. Registration fees are $15 for Stony Brook employees, $50 for community members and alumni.
