Voinovich School to host women’s forum on leadership

The Voinovich School is kicking off spring semester with a Women’s Forum on Jan. 20 at 1:30 p.m. in Rm. 105 in Bldg. 21 at The Ridges with the director of the Women’s Center at Ohio University. Dr. M. Geneva Murray will speak about the programs offered at the center for women leaders, as well as addressing topics of discussion from those in attendance.

Murray’s discussion aims to extend the conversation started last October, when guests Beverly Jones and Merry Foresta led a special session for the women of the Voinovich School. Their talk focused on women’s leadership issues and how to succeed in today’s world. Now Murray will present on the different programs offered to students to allow them to continue discussing these issues.

The Women’s Center offers many programs, including leadership and professional development. A few of these programs include She Leads OHIO, AAUW Start Smart Salary Negotiation, and Running Start’s Elect Her. More information about programs can be found at the Women’s Center website.

Make sure to stop by Jan. 20 to learn about the incredible opportunities offered through the Women’s Center, continue discussing women’s issues, and grab some free Purple Chopsticks for lunch! All students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.
