Monday, March 24, 5:30 P.M. - 9:00 P.M.JSOM Executive Dining Room, JSOM 1.606
In the fall we gathered to discuss ideas on why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled. This discussion was based on Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Office of Facebook, and her book Lean In. In part II of our Lean In and Lead Series, we will discuss the role of men as advocates for gender equity and diversity and practical ways they can support the advancement of women in any setting. Remarks will be made by Terry Howard, Director of Diversity & Inclusion at Texas Instruments, followed by a Q&A with a panel of professional men and women.
This event is presented by the UT Dallas Galerstein Women's Center, Fraternity and Sorority Life, Student Leadership Programs, Office of Development and Alumni Relations, Arts and Humanities. Dinner will be provided. Please RSVP, by clicking here, by Monday, March 17, 2014. If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact Narcely Ruiz via phone at 972-883-6556 or by email.
