Leading Women:
Political and Civic Engagement
Date: Friday, December 1, 2017     Time: 9AM to 12:30PM

Place: Joseph S. Murphy Institute
25 West 43rd Street, 18th Floor, Manhattan

Only Open to Invited CUNY Students


This conference is intended to create a pipeline for young student leaders by providing a forum where diverse women leaders in civics, community services, education and business can come together to mentor and provide diverse CUNY women students with an opportunity to hear about career trajectories, challenges faced and overcome, and what leadership in the context of their gender, ethnic community, religious and other affinities means.

With a particular emphasis on unpacking the unique challenges minority women face, this conference will explore the complexity of navigating multiple identities in the workplace while equipping students with the strategies and adaptive leadership practices needed to create and develop social capital.

We are very excited and honored to be joined by five highly distinguished women leaders who have displayed remarkable leadership in their respective fields and careers. These women will provide valuable insight on their professional journey, the importance of mentorship, and how they navigated leadership roles.
