These students had the opportunity to learn about women’s leadership issues from a broad range of speakers, including internationally known activists, politicians, journalists, entrepreneurs, and educators. Natalie Reed represented IC at the national Elect Her workshop, and she will be coordinating the 2015 program at Ithaca College to encourage young women to run for office on campus and in the community. Michele Lenhart, director of student leadership and involvement, presented a workshop on Gender Equality and Cultural Change.
