Sharing our Stories: Women Leaders at Iowa - Present and Future

A three-part series to celebrate Women’s History Month

We have designed a program to take advantage of our cadre of women leaders and to make space for considering personal leadership journeys. We are all leaders, whether we have positional power or not. Engaging in the process, preparing to take the reins, or simply recognizing and celebrating your worth makes who we are and what we do a benefit to all.

We encourage you to attend these sessions as you are able. You will only need to register for the final session, which will be in person, and we will provide lunch.

HawkID authentication will be required to join via zoom. How to sign in to Zoom: sign in with SSO, company domain: uiowa, complete the HawkID sign-in.
