Women’s Leadership in Times of Crisis

Monday, March 8 | 9:00 a.m.


Delivered via Zoom, pre-registration required.

The UCI School of Social Sciences and OSU School of Public Policy are proud to collaborate with Athena40 to host a dynamic panel of U.S. leaders as part of the 3rd Athena40 Global Conversation on Female Leadership. This engaging virtual speaker panel is part of a global discussion, joining international leaders and thinkers from 10 cities. We know the most pressing crises cannot be solved without women’s involvement, and our panel will offer insights into the role of women in shaping crisis response to issues facing the Western region of the U.S., the U.S. as a whole, and how all of these issues connect to our place within the global community.
