Public polling shows that a majority of Americans would like to see more women in leadership positions, whether in government, private business, or non-governmental organizations. While the number of female leaders in public policy has increased in recent years, structural barriers and other inequities continue to challenge women in bringing their talents and perspectives to bear. This panel discussion will feature women currently serving in leadership roles at various levels in their organizations. Join us for a practical, substantive discussion on the challenges and opportunities women face in seeking and succeeding in leadership roles in public policy.
Panelists for this discussion will be:
Emily Goellner, Community Development Director, City of Wayzata
Dianne Haulcy, President and CEO, The Family Partnership
Britta Reitan, Deputy Commissioner, Office of Management and Budget, State of Minnesota
Christina Ewig, Professor of Public Affairs and Faculty Director of the Center on Women, Gender and Public Policy, University of Minnesota Humphrey School of Public Affairs will moderate the discussion.
