Some headlines exclaim that women’s economic, political and social equality has largely been achieved. But has there really been a quiet revolution with women taking over the workforce and leadership positions? Or, as others say, has progress towards gender equity stalled, and there are still significant barriers for women?
Launched in 2009, Status of Women & Girls in Minnesota is an ongoing collaborative research project of the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota and the University of Minnesota Humphrey Institute’s Center on Women & Public Policy. The research provides a baseline for measuring women’s progress in Minnesota.
During our luncheon the current research findings will be reviewed by Debra Fitzpatrick, Center Director and lead researcher. Following her comments, a panel of local women leaders will comment on their own careers and personal experiences with leadership and power: Judith Ramely, President of Winona State University; Melissa Brinkman, CEO of Custom Communications; Jorrie Johnson, Publisher of Rochester Women magazine, and Miriam Goodson, Juntos Coordinator, Alliance of Chicanos, Hispanics and Latin Americans.
This luncheon event is open to the public. Pre-registration is required by Nov 30. Cost is $15 which includes lunch. For more information pleases contact Sheila Kiscaden at email@example.com or 507-287-6845.
This event is co-sponsored by the Emerging Leaders Network, AAUW, League of Women Voters Rochester and Rochester Women Magazine.
