Advancing Women in Leadership: It Takes a Team

A recent Catalyst study shows that women are underrepresented on corporate boards and in the "C-suite" of executives. It also indicates that businesses with female C-level executives and board members have significant bottom-line advantages. So what do women leaders need to do to make it up the ladder? How can men provide support for them to make it to the top?

Duquesne University's School of Leadership and Professional Advancement will explore the challenges that women face, and the successes they have achieved, during the next session of its Breakfast Leadership Series. Advancing Women in Leadership: It Takes a Team is an interactive presentation that will be led by Rebecca Harris, director of the Center for Women's Entrepreneurship at Chatham University, from 8 to 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6, in the Power Center Ballroom.

Harris is an entrepreneur with more than 20 years of experience as a consultant and marketing specialist and is passionate about helping women start and grow successful businesses.

Breakfast will be served at 7:30 a.m. The $45 cost includes parking, continental breakfast and handout materials.
