Women's Leadership Symposium
Lebanon Valley College hosted the 3rd annual Women's Leadership Symposium on September 28, 2013 in Zimmerman Recital Hall and Lynch Memorial Hall. The event was a collaboration between the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Counseling Services, Athletics, and the Division of Student Affairs.
The purpose of this event is to bring undergraduate women together to network with one another as well as campus and local female leaders. The symposium will allow participants to strengthen their leadership ability and build community and connection.
The 2013 program, "Lean In, Sit at the Table and Keep Your Hand Up!", was based on Sheryl Sandberg's book "Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead."
Keynote Speaker: Alicia Anabel Santos
"A Woman's Worth!"
The keynote addressed a woman's rightful place at a table usually reserved for men; where women stop waiting for an invitation and begin to shift their beliefs from lack and limitation to self worth and discovering their true value in the world.
Santos is a writer, producer, playwright and activist who is passionate about writing works that empower women to find their voices. She is the founder of the New York City Latina Writers Group and her play "I WAS BORN" was chosen as part of the ONE Festival in NYC. Alicia lives in NYC where she writes and advocates against the sexual and physical abuse of women and children.
The program also included:
- Finding a Seat at the Table panel
- Leading in the Moment workshop
- And Much More!
