The College of Business Administration will host the 2013 Women in Business Breakfast from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Oct. 15 at the Champions Club, 707 Stadium Drive. The breakfast will feature a panel of dynamic women business leaders discussing “Lean In” and the impact of gender-role traditionalism on today’s workplace.
The breakfast is free and open to the public. Registration, due by Oct. 10, is available at http://cba.unl.edu/womensbreakfast.
“Sheryl Sandberg’s book ‘Lean In’ challenges women to change the conversation from what we can’t do to what we can do,” said Donde Plowman, dean of the College of Business Administration. “This breakfast is an important way to start the dialogue in Lincoln. I look forward to an energizing exchange about women and leadership in the workplace.”
Sandberg wrote “Lean In” in response to her 2010 TED Talk on the ways women are held back and in turn hold themselves back. Plowman will moderate the discussion with a panel featuring the following women business leaders:
• Catherine Lang, director of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development and commissioner of the Nebraska Department of Labor
• Lisa Smith, investment consultant at Smith Hayes Financial Services
• Katie Zulkoski, associate with Mueller Robak, LLC.
