The Alumnae Association & National Board are proud to announce our partnership with Take The Lead on their upcoming Launch Event.
Take The Lead is a new nonprofit organization calling on women to embrace their “power to” shape their lives and careers to eliminate the pervasive pay and leadership gaps. Take The Lead’s mission is to prepare, develop, inspire, and propel women to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025.
We invite you to take part in the organization’s Take The Lead Challenge Launch Event. The livestream will be hosted on Wednesday February 19th at 8PM EST. It is a nation-wide event, featuring many strong female leaders in our society, including Facebook COO and Lean In author, Sheryl Sandberg. A full list of speakers can be found HERE
The challenge theme calls women, men, and organizations to action and gives women the tools they need to succeed in work, civic leadership, and personal life. Women earn 77 cents to men’s dollar and make up half the workforce but only 18 percent of top leadership positions. The reasons have been researched ad infinitum. Take The Lead shifts the focus from problems to solutions.
