Beyond Balance: Women’s Challenges and Choices in the 21st Century

Wednesday, December 3, 2014
6:00-7:30 PM
Science Center Hall D
Harvard Yard, Cambridge
Alumnae-i Network for Harvard Women 

Join Alumnae Network for Harvard Women and the Harvard Alumni Association for an evening exploring the complex array of challenges and choices that face women today. The distinguished cross-disciplinary faculty panel will present and discuss new research and ongoing concerns about the role of women in leadership positions, in media coverage, and at home. At a time when the perennial question seems to be “Can Women Have it All?” the discussion will address how “balance” is distracting us from core concerns, and offer individual ways of handling discrimination in the workplace. A light reception will follow the program.
Participants include:

  • Barbara Kellerman, James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Leadership, Harvard Kennedy School
  • Jane Mansbridge, Adams Professor of Political Leadership and Democratic Values
  • Lakshmi Ramarajan, Assistant Professor, Harvard Business School
  • Caroline Light (moderator), Lecturer and Director of Undergraduate Studies, Program in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, FAS
