International Women Shared Their Statesboro Experience at Latest WLS
The Women’s Leadership Series (WLS) kicked off 2017 with its first session “Perceptions and Identities of International Women in the Workplace” on March 9.
Team Leaders Arpita Saha, Shainaz Landge, and May Buser De conceptualized this exciting session. The session was composed as roundtable, with ten international participants from campus and the community, to share the experiences of being international business members, faculty, and students in Statesboro, Ga.
The session was well attended and focused on the enriching experience of coming from outside the United States and contributing to a new community in Statesboro.
The WLS meets next on April 7 from 2-4 p.m. in room 2148 of the College of Education Building. Michele Martin, Assistant Director of Student Affairs, CRI Programs, will lead a panel entitled “Achieving Work-Life Balance.”
The Women’s Leadership Series, sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program (WGST), arose out of a WGST collaborative panel on Women and Mentoring, led by WGST Director Lisa A. Costello, Ph.D., at the Diversity, Inclusion, and Fairness (DIF) Conference in 2016.
The Leadership Series is designed to create leadership opportunities for women to plan and lead sessions, as well as to serve the campus and community by promoting cutting edge material on issues affecting women in leadership.
