Learn What It Takes to Make a Woman Leader

2015 was the year that welcomed the most women in Congress ever, but women’s representation is still dismal overall in leadership realms, including politics and business. At our What Does It Take to Make a Woman Leader? plenary panel at the 2015 AAUW National Convention, we’ll tackle important questions related to women’s paths to leadership, how women are treated once they become leaders, and how to empower women leaders in our local communities.

Join our moderator, Marianne Schnall, and our distinguished panelists as they discuss these topics and more.
